Andrea Volpe Travels to Vietnam as EU Desk Reconnects with Asia Offices in-Person
To arrange a meeting with Andrea Volpe to discuss doing business in Asia, please get in touch here.
Andrea Volpe, Senior Consultant at Dezan Shira & Associates and based in our Udine, Italy office is returning to Asia after years of collaborating at a distance. From May 16 to the 28th, Andrea who sits on both the German and Italian desks, will be in Vietnam visiting clients, partners, and colleagues.
Vietnam officially fully reopened on March 15th, 2022 allowing all travel to the country. While a negative test is still required to cross into Vietnam, the country joins a number of ASEAN countries who have switched to living alongside Covid-19 and allowing cross-border travel.
Despite continued supply chain stressors, Vietnam has been on track to make a full recovery with the economy expanding 5.22% in Q4 of 2021 and 5.03% in Q1, 2022.
Andrea will visit DSA’s Hanoi office in the second half of May, along with our newly relocated, Ho Chi Minh City office. There, he will meet with colleagues, clients and partners – some for the first time face-to-face.
You can follow along on Andrea’s trip and the changes he has observed in Vietnam post-Covid in his daily Vietnam updates (in Italian).
Dezan Shira & Associates’ Presence in Europe
Europe has significant trade and investment dealings with Asia – ASEAN and China are both among the bloc’s top three trade partners outside the EU. With parts of Asia rapidly developing and the EU pursuing trade agreements with Asian counterparts, there is a wealth of opportunities for European investors in the region.
Incorporated in Munich in January of 2021, Dezan Shira & Associates’ German office serves as a first point of contact for European companies wishing to do business in Asia. The team here works with a variety of partners to educate more businesses on the economic performance and regulatory environment of developing Asian economies.
