The profit, however, was lower than US$4.7 billion in 2018, marking a decline in Samsung Vietnam’s profit for a second consecutive year.

Unlike the other three sister companies, Samsung Display Vietnam (SDV) saw its revenue down from US$18.1 billion in 2018 to US$14.3 billion in 2019, leading to a decrease of 40% in SDV’s profit.

Meanwhile, revenue of Samsung Electronics Vietnam Thai Nguyen (SEVT) climbed 9% year-on-year to US$28.2 billion, and that of Samsung Electronics Vietnam Bac Ninh (SEV) slightly declined to US$19.2 billion from US$19.5 billion a year earlier.

Samsung Electronics Ho Chi Minh (SEHC), another subsidiary of Samsung in Vietnam, recorded an increase of 10% year-on-year in revenue to US$4.2 billion.

In the global market, Samsung’s after-tax profit suffered a sharp decline of 50% from US$38 billion in 2018 to US$18.7 billion in 2019.

According to Samsung's statistics, around 50% of Samsung's smartphones and tablets are produced in Vietnam and exported to 128 countries and territories, including the US, Europe, Russia and Southeast Asia.

In the 2008 – 2018 period, Samsung increased its total investment in Vietnam from US$670 million to over US$17.3 billion, a 26-fold increase. 

In early March, Samsung Vietnam started construction its largest R&D center in Southeast Asia in the West of Hanoi for investment capital of US$220 million. The company expected Vietnam would not only be its largest production hub, but also a strategic base for R&D.
