After several years in the doldrums, Vietnam has once again become a top investment destination within ASEAN and is recording some of the region’s highest GDP growth rates. Large FDI commitments are transforming the country’s export base, infrastructure and its consuming class. However, the majority of Vietnam’s ruling Politburo and Central Committee will be replaced next year during of the 12th National Congress of the Communist Party of Vietnam. What does this mean for Vietnam and investors?
On the 17th of September, EuroCham, in conjunction with Control Risks and the participation of Asia Counsel, was pleased to bring you another Breakfast Talk at the Fullerton Hotel. This edition focused on the developments within Vietnam as a rising economic vessel in ASEAN. A new panel of Control Risks experts was here to discuss the political power structures and leadership, the likely outcomes next year, and how these affect government policy, the investment landscape and operating environment. Meanwhile, specialists from Asia Counsel focused on recent law changes that were implemented in Vietnam. This led to a fulfilling discussion between participants and panelists.
The talk was moderated by Mr Andrew Naylor, EuroCham Board Member.
