What: Breakfast Roundtable on Digital Innovation and the TPP

When: Friday, September 11, 8:30am – 10:30am

Where: Sofitel Legend Metropole Hanoi, 15 Ngo Quyen Street, Hoan Kiem District, Hanoi

With the embrace of technological innovation and involvement in the ongoing Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) negotiations, Vietnam is quickly becoming one of the leading investment opportunities in Asia. While the long-term potential of the Vietnamese economy is high, excess government regulations threaten to unnecessarily choke off investment and stagnate future growth.

On the morning of September 11, AmCham is pleased to welcome representatives from the Progressive Policy Institute in Washington for a breakfast roundtable to discuss the rise of Vietnam’s new economy, government policies needed to promote further investment and growth, and the role of trade in the future success of Vietnam. The Progressive Policy Institute is a think-tank established in 1989 as a center for political innovation in Washington, DC. Nicknamed “Bill Clinton’s idea mill,” PPI’s policy analysis and proposals have been the source for many of the “New Democrat”

innovations that have figured prominently in national politics over the past two decades. The Institute also has been integral to the spread of “Third Way” thinking to center-left parties in Europe and elsewhere. During their trip to Hanoi next week, PPI will release a new report highlighting Vietnam’s growing success in nurturing high-tech companies and ongoing efforts to support digital innovation and entrepreneurship here. This breakfast roundtable will feature a presentation about government policies that can help or harm investment and technological innovation, and an update on the ongoing TPP negotiations and the geopolitical importance of open digital trade. Seating is limited. Please fill out the registration form below. AmCham will confirm all participants by separate email.

Cost: 500,000 VND/person
