McDonald's to enter Vietnam market

17 July 2013 Last updated at 02:03 BST

Vietnam is to get a taste of McDonald's after the US burger giant said it would open its first outlet there next year.

The chain's franchise has been awarded to Henry Nguyen, son-in-law of Communist-ruled Vietnam's leader.

The move underlines Vietnam's hunger for Western consumer brands and the attractions for foreign investors.

Mr Nguyen spoke to the BBC's Rico Hizon about what the fast food chain's plan are for Vietnam.
