P&G are opening a Gillette factory in Vietnam, joining Feather and Dorco who are already there. Kai is in Vietnam, but I am not sure whether that include razors and razor blade production.

it's old news that in other fields manufacturers are moving south because of rising costs in China.

I have seen it in textiles, but not in general consumer manufacturing.

I've been hearing this for a couple of years now. 

Clothing has generally been made in SE asia and Latin America as long as I can remember, in the United states anyways. It has been more uncommon to find made in China.

Interesting, it appears the Asian Tiger boom of the last decade didn't improve standard wages for countries like Indonesia and The Philippines. Laos, Cambodia and Vietnam I can understand.

This thread can 'go south' real quick too. Just keep in mind a product has 3 impacts; the resources and people who make it, the consumers who use it and post consumer recycling or not.

Probably is about  control and, also, not having all the eggs in one basket Smile

 One time I encountered Vietnamese products it was the DE razor blades house brand in a German drug store (Mueller), I think.
