DFDL is pleased to invite you to a Singapore Business Federation workshop with a special focus on Vietnam Investment & Employment Laws on 4 March 2020 at SBF Center in Singapore.

Investment Laws Workshop

Vietnam’s economy continues to show fundamental strength, supported by robust domestic demand and export-oriented manufacturing. The extreme poverty rate is estimated to have now declined to below 3 percent and the rapid GDP growth is underpinned by a broad-based pickup in economic activity within the country. This growth and development has transformed Vietnam from one of the world’s poorest nations to a lower middle-income country, highly capable of delivering attractive returns for investors.

Course Outline:

  • Introduction for Singapore companies doing business in Vietnam
  • Overview of doing business in Vietnam
  • Corporate formation and forms of business
  • Merger & Acquisition – buying a company in Vietnam
  • Case studies on recent M&A
