According to the participations, including the Ambassador of India to Vietnam, bilateral trade and investment ties have been growing stronger since the establishment of the Vietnam-India Comprehensive Strategic Partnership in 2016. In particular, the two-way trade revenue between Vietnam and India is on course to increase from $7.8 billion in 2015-2016 to $12.8 billion in 2017-2018, and is expected to hit $15 billion by 2020.

Both countries also have huge co-operation potential in the areas of healthcare, pharmaceuticals, energy, services, information technology, mining, and other sectors.

India is among the 30 biggest foreign investors in Vietnam with 223 projects with the total accumulated registered capital of $913.33 million as of April 2019, focusing on energy, industry park infrastructure development, IT, pharmaceuticals, and agriculture.

In the first four months of 2019, India ranked 22th among the countries and territories having investment in Vietnam with $28.44 million, according to the FIA.
