2019 US-Vietnam Business Summit

Event Details

  • Date:

AmCham, in cooperation with VCCI and the US Chamber of Commerce, will host the 2019 US-Vietnam Business Summit: Celebrating 25 Years of Trade and Investment on May 10 in Hanoi. This important advocacy event will build on the current positive momentum in our bilateral economic relationship and will feature the release of a joint white paper recommending a concrete framework to deepen trade and investment between the US and Vietnam. 

Business and economics were at the top of agenda during President Trump’s recent meetings with Vietnamese leaders in Hanoi. The President issued an invitation to General Secretary and President Nguyen Phu Trong to visit Washington and we anticipate a trip this summer based on our discussions with senior Vietnamese leaders. Therefore, we believe that the next couple of months present a unique opportunity to move business deals forward and to address recent changes in policy and regulations which expose many investors to considerable risks and obstacles in executing their investments here.

His Excellency Prime Minister Nguyen Xuan Phuc is invited to deliver the keynote address at the event. In addition, private sector leaders from the United States, Vietnam and across the region will participate, along with a high-level delegation from the US. Key discussion topics will include:

  • Enhancing the digital economy
  • Addressing energy development needs
  • Promoting the creative economy
  • Supply chains, logistics, and competitiveness
  • Technical barriers to trade
  • Promoting Links between SMEs and MNCs
  • Global trade dynamics
  • Fintech and financial inclusion

Actions that increase productivity and reduce the costs and risks of doing business in Vietnam will further grow the economy and will help move the bilateral economic relationship to the next level. Join this business summit on May 10 to promote continued trade and investment between our countries, and to focus on solutions which address the many areas where inconsistencies, inefficiencies, and unfair practices persist.

Entrance for members of AmCham, the US Chamber of Commerce, and VCCI is VND5,000,000. The entrance fee for individuals that are not members of the organizations listed above is VND6,000,000.
