On 19 September 2019, Singapore Business Federation’s organized workshop on doing business in Vietnam was led by Jerome Buzenet (DFDL Partner & Vietnam Managing Director) and Dai Thang Huynh (DFDL Vietnam Partner & Head of the Hanoi Office).
Jerome shared his expertise on investment laws with a practical focus on Singapore companies doing business in Vietnam. He gave an overview on corporate formation and the different forms of entities to conduct business and presented a series of case studies on mergers and acquisitions.
In the afternoon session, Dai Thang Huynh highlighted the key features of the Vietnamese employment regulatory system. He discussed recent updates relevant to foreign businesses employing a workforce in Vietnam and provided an overview of Vietnamese employees’ dynamics and mentality. Real-life cases of employment issues and disputes were highlighted to add a practical dimension to the discussions.
The key takeaway for the participants included some insight about how to invest in Vietnam’s growth, understand the local constraints and customs and ensure compliance with local laws.
