REACT’s ambition to develop its enforcement efforts throughout Asia Pacific continue and have recently resulted in our services being extended to Vietnam. Vietnam is rapidly becoming more vital for anti-counterfeiting enforcement. The production of fakes are moving from China to Vietnam because of the lower wages offered there. Vietnamese Customs are also becoming increasingly accessible to support enforcement by preventing cross border trade of infringing goods.
