Vietnam is the most promising emerging market for Korean companies, according to a survey of 540 firms by the Korea International Trade Association.
Most of the countries ranked high on the list are Southeast Asian -- namely Indonesia, Thailand and Malaysia. The top 15 nations also include Saudi Arabia, Mexico and Poland.
One noticeable shared feature of these countries is that they have a large young population between 15 and 24. This means they have a lot of room to grow, as these are the people who will lead future production and consumption.
Vietnam's economic growth last year hovered above the global average at 5.6 percent and is forecast to continue the momentum this year.
