Vietnam now has some manufacturers started to produce HPL plywood already ,their quality levels are low but no delamination ,that is what I saw there .Birch Plywood overlaid with HPL (High Pressure Laminate) on one or both faces. On the reverse face balance paper can be applied.HPL is a common choice for horizontal surfaces including flooring, countertops and desktops.
