NAVIGATING ASIA’S BUSINESS LANDSCAPE: HOW VIETNAM COULD COMPLEMENT YOUR CHINA OPERATION
8.45AM to 12.00PM | September 17 | Guangzhou, China
Vietnam has overtime successfully established itself as a leading destination for foreign direct investment, thanks to its increasing integration with world markets. Its FTA network is currently connecting Vietnam to 68% of the world GDP population. The recent achievement is the signed European Union-Vietnam Free Trade Agreement that connects Vietnam to one of the third largest player in global trade. '
Further, the biggest seaport and industrial hub of North Vietnam – Haiphong city has invested massively in state-of-theart multimodal infrastructures. The first direct call to US was recently launched in April 2019, minimizing transportation time and risk. Especially with the proximity to the Chinese market as well as the economic zone tax package bring tremendous business opportunities for investors in finding a location which can complement their operation in China.
For businesses to take full advantage of those developments, experts such as European Chamber of Commerce Vietnam, Dezan Shira & Association, Jones Lang LaSalle and DEEP C Industrial Zones will share insights regarding recent developments and the key to successfully planning your business in Vietnam.
