Vietnam 2024 salary guide for roles in HR, IT, banking & finance, and more

Talent development, DEI management, and leadership are among the 10 most in demand skills in HR in 2024.

Vietnam’s economy decelerated the previous year, transitioning from a growth rate of 8% in 2022 to a moderated 5.05% in 2023. This transformation was largely influenced by weak global demand and a temporary pause in public investment.

According to PERSOLKELLY’s Vietnam Salary Guide 2024, the growth rate fell below the 6.5% target, and even the decade-long average of 5.87%. Looking ahead, Vietnam envisions an economic resurgence — the government has set targets of 6% to 6.5% for GDP growth in 2024, underscoring the nation’s potential for recovery and future growth. 

To better prepare for any future trends, the expected monthly salaries for roles across industries in Ho Chi Minh and Hanoi is as follows.
