On 8 October 2019, the British Business Group Vietnam organized a breakfast seminar on “Vietnam Industrial: Review and Projection” at the Sofitel Saigon Plaza in Ho Chi Minh City. This event aimed to help foreign investors understand significant changes anticipated, which may impact the industrial sector in Vietnam such as, the US-China trade war, the Comprehensive and Progressive Agreement for Trans-Pacific Partnership (“CPTPP”), and EU Vietnam Free Trade Agreement (“EVFTA”).
Paul Volodarsky (DFDL Vietnam Senior Legal Adviser) was pleased to share his expertise and insights on the legal framework and opportunities for foreign investment in the logistics sector in Vietnam. His presentation also covered anticipated changes in the investment laws to encourage more public private partnership for the development of infrastructure necessary for the efficient expansion of logistics services.
The participants also heard from Savills on Q3 market snapshot and logistics analysis, and from BWID on Trade War overview and its impacts. The audience was provided with a detailed overview of the current trends in the industrial sector for Vietnam and a projection of what is to come.
