5. What do you know about us and motor-cycle market in VN (markets intention)
2

According to my knowledge, there are five main companies in the field of motor cycle, I can
list here they are Piagio, Honda, Yamaha, SYM, Suzuki.Piagio only focuses on high class
scooter. Honda Vietnam is the biggest and the leading company in the motor cycle in
Vietnam, the company always lauch many good product and pay attention to social
activities.Honda motor cycle is durable, save gas but the design may be less young than
Yamaha motor.
About motor-cycle market in Vietnam, I think at least in more than 10 next year, motor cycle
will still remain the main transport means, but the markets and customer intention may be
change, customer want to use more high class scooter than tranditional motorcyle, because
the income of citizen raise higher and higher year by year and the means for transport is not
only a simple motorcyle but also they want to show their style and may be their social status,
Moreover, they intend to pay more attention for safety of the mean as well as the
appearance. So, in the near future, high class product will compsumt more strongly.
6. What do you understand about a survey team
For the survey team, we have to research market intention, customers deman to empove
the product and service quality. We have to collect the customer opinion or organize event.
The result of a survey can indicate us the market signal to guide our business plan to
empove our business activities.
7. Have you ever conducted a servey
Yes, I used to conduct a servey. Such as when I want to know about the sastifaction of
investor for M&A investment. We have to conduct a servey. We can deliver a survey form to
each one directly or through email or google document. The people we aim at can be the
CEO, investment director, chief investment officer, M&A advisor, so on
-

What did you research on them

Whether they are satisfied with the result of M&A


Do they want to M&A or use another form of investment
The advantage of disadvantage of M&A on their opinion..
-

We can monitor the price of stock or financial criteria

8. How many methods do you conduct a servey


There are some main methods for a servey, for example we can interview directly, or ask
throug a question form. We can conduct qualitative and quantitative analysis criteria.
The process of a survey can be divide into 4 parts. The first, we have to know clealy the
target of the servey, then we set up method, tool for our servey, after that we choose the
object we want to research, we have to prepare people and the last we have to proceed and
analize the information we have collected, and from it we can give some advice or solution to
emprove our products or services.
9. What are the difficults when you conduct a servey

The most difficult we get in a survey is that, we can choose a good method and choose the
correct object, some people who usually have too many things to attend so I want to be sure
they pay attention for my survey and answer correctly on their opinion, certainly, sometimes
it may be incorrect but in genneral we have a general result. It must be corect relatively. It
give me general indicator or a clear signal.
I have some solution for these difficult, for instance, we can arrange appointment with key
people to interview directly, if they too busy, we can make telefone call or send them online.
Or we have to restructure our form to appropriate with the characteristics servey, so on
