Vietnam Covid-19 Recovery: Using New Support Measures for Your Business and Updates to Foreign Work Permits
Webinar | December 1, 2021 | 4:00 PM EST / 1:00 PM PST
Notwithstanding the last Covid-19 outbreak and the implementation of restrictive measures to contain the spread of the virus, Vietnam is still a hotspot for foreign trade and businesses. After a strict lockdown that ended in October, Vietnam is ready to bounce back, lifting the previously imposed restrictions, rapidly rolling out Covid-19 vaccines to mitigate the risks of outbreaks, and releasing a series of welcomed measures and incentives to support business.
Companies operating in Vietnam can access and benefit from a package of incentives and recovery measures to ease the transition from the pandemic emergency status to business as usual. Also, companies relying on the expertise of foreign workers now find a more favorable legal framework aimed at easing the procedures required to issue and renew work permits.
Join us on this Eastern Standard Time viewing, as Filippo Bortoletti, International Business Advisory Senior Manager, provides you with an overview of the government’s latest support packages to ease recovery for businesses.
Overview of current Government’s measures to support businesses’ recovery:
• CIT incentives for the supporting industry
• Reductions in land rents and electricity bills
• Loan policies for furlough wages and production recovery
• Reductions in the unemployment insurance’s contributions
• CIT and VAT cuts
Overview of recent amendments on issuance and renewal of work permits for foreign workers
• Amendments in the legal framework for issuing and renewing work permits for foreign workers.
