GLC and its Associates are active in all major Vietnamese markets. As a result, our specialty trade service is linking US firms to Vietnam's vast product market and to compatible Vietnamese business associates, and assisting US companies in locating new product sourcing channels through our network of relationships with Vietnamese manufacturers.
Our product sourcing and importing channels offer significant savings to our clients due to the much lower material and labor costs in Vietnam coupled with the aggressive posture taken by the Vietnamese government to ensure economic development and foreign trade.

Why Do You Need Us?
GLC with affiliate offices throughout the US and Vietnam, has compiled a wealth of information on trade potentials between the US and Vietnam.
GLC will act as your agent in Vietnam. We know Vietnam, its language and culture, customs and business practices. This expertise enables us to know where to go for quality products at the best possible price on your behalf.
Sure you could send an Overseas Buyer. This person could spend some time, meet some suppliers, and certainly buy something. But, would you be getting the best price? Or, the best quality? And, how long would it take your Overseas Buyer to learn the business culture and Supplier capabilities? Would you really be getting a product made to your specifications? Would you be getting the product direct from the manufacture, or from an in country agent claiming to be producer? Would it be manufactured and shipped on time?
These nagging questions and many other potential problems illustrate why having an experienced local representation is so important. GLC can be that representative. GLC is owned by an American who has spend the past 10 years in Vietnam sourcing products, and providing business consulting services to Vietnamese businesses. Our in-country staff and Associates consists of US educated English-speaking Vietnamese-Americans who now reside in Vietnam. Thus, they are knowledgeable of both Vietnamese and US business cultures.
How Do We Know The Best Manufacturers?
GLC has researched hundreds of Vietnamese suppliers throughout Vietnam in virtually every market. We have filtered our way through the multitude of agents pretending to be manufacturers. We have toured factories and facilities. From this extensive research, we have selected and pre-qualified the best manufacturers of specific products within specific markets. Additionally, we have working relationships with these high quality suppliers. We have established these relationships with company executives, touring their facilities, and working with them to assure export product quality, capacity, and timeliness.
With the governments focus on economic development through the increase of exports and the approval of the Bilateral Free Trade Agreement (BTA), these firms are more than happy to receive our assistance while giving us the opportunity to pre-qualify their products as suitable for US export.
By being here in Vietnam coupled with our experience in the country, we have sufficient connections in each major Vietnamese market to be able to pre-qualify any supplier or manufacturer with confidence.
Need A Product Manufactured?
At GLC, we have the capability to have your unique product manufactured by quality manufacturers who understand the importance of price and quality to the America marketplace and with our local staff, we can oversee production quality on your behalf. Given an engineering drawing and/or sample of the product, we can locate an appropriate manufacturer who can produce it to your desired specifications, quantities, and packaging requirements. We also have extensive capabilities to design and prototype products based on a product concept. Being here in Vietnam gives us the ability to locate these top-quality manufacturers and locally verify on-time production with the desired quality control.
How We Work For You
GLC has senior market and trade Associates and government contacts throughout Vietnam and the United States. We have a keen understanding of market outlook in both countries. Most of our Associates in Vietnam are American citizens with extensive US business experience. They now live and work in Vietnam full time. GLC's Managing Director lived in Vietnam for the several years and worked directly with the country's Ministries and senior officials. He now lives in the US but travels to Vietnam frequently. Our US Associates reside in key business regions throughout the US. The GLC team possesses in-depth knowledge of successful American and Vietnamese business practices from actual experience at executive management levels. We are fully committed to alliance building, trade facilitation, and investment acquisition between the US and Vietnam.
For the US business, we are a one-stop shop for business tours and introductions to Vietnamese markets, Vietnam travel arrangements, cultural consulting and translation, business practice consulting, lobbying Vietnamese government officials, business start up in Vietnam, in-country logistical support, coordination and management of local resources, corporate alliance building, investment analysis, product and service sourcing, trade facilitation and negotiations, and marketing and distribution of US exports.
GLC is a results oriented service provider. We strongly believe that if our services do not help you achieve your goals, then we have failed and are not worthy of profitable compensation. However, we are extremely confident in our abilities to assist our clients and to assure accomplishment of reasonable goals and objectives. Therefore, we work for you in a somewhat risk free basis. We do not seek to be all things to all people or to accept work in areas where others may provide a better service. We will analyze your issue in confidence and if we believe your venture is unlikely to achieve the results you desire or others would represent you better, we will so advise you.
When you employ GLC's expert business Associates for consultant support, in-country marketing and lobbying services, corporate alliance building, and in-country cultural and logistical support, you will pay no upfront fees or retainers. We will first meet with you to discuss your needs and objectives. From this initial meeting, we will determine whether your objectives are achievable and whether we can confidently assist you. Upon mutual agreement of the scope of services and business objective, we will charge you a very reasonable consulting rate for our services, payable weekly with 25 percent retained by you until project completion. If your objectives are not met, then the retainer is yours.
When you employ GLC to assist you with investment acquisition or product marketing and sales, you will pay no upfront fees or retainers. We will meet to discuss your business needs and goals, and we will come to mutual agreement as to reasonable goals and milestones for your business venture. We will also come to agreement on our compensation, which will be fully tied to and payable with achieved milestones. Again, if we don't help you succeed, we don't get paid. It's a simple and logical concept that many companies are afraid to embrace because of historical poor performance.
Another way of working for you as mentioned earlier, is to work with you as a partner. GLC is prepared to enter into business venture partnering deals in which we will share in the investment to launch the venture and then share in the ventures profit. These partnering deals will particularly be considered for product exporters wishing to penetrate the emerging Vietnam markets. On a case-by-case basis, GLC would conceptually share in the expense to ship and introduce products into the Vietnam market prior to acquiring buyers. In most cases, with proper market and competitor analysis, this approach will result in favorable results and expedite the market penetration process.
