The Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) has committed its member states to have national competition policies and legislation in place by 2015. Many expect that as a result, the existing Vietnamese competition law will be amended to make it more straightforward to enforce.

What challenges confront the business community with reference to Vietnam’s competition law compliance and what can be learned from international – particularly recent Chinese – experience?

On February 25 at lunchtime, AmCham welcomes a panel of experts for a presentation and discussion on Vietnam’s competition law and anti-trust law. At this event, attendees will learn about the current enforcement agenda and priorities of the Vietnam Competition Authority including details on how the Authority selects matters for investigation and whether the law provides the business community sufficient guidance as to what is legal and illegal.

Panel Participants:

Mr. Cao Xuan Hien – Head of the Antitrust Investigation Board, Vietnam Competition Authority, Ministry of Industry & Trade.

Mr. John Davies, Partner and former Global Head of Freshfields Bruckhaus Deringer LLP’s competition law practice.

Mr. Terry Calvani, Of Counsel, Freshfields Bruckhaus Deringer US LLP, formerly Commissioner of the US Federal Trade Commission and Member of the Board holding the criminal cartel portfolio.

Don’t miss this opportunity to lunch-and-learn with AmCham as we discuss competition law compliance in Vietnam. Participation in the form of questions, comments, experiences and advice will be welcomed and encouraged during this discussion. Attendees at this event will enjoy a 3- course lunch during the discussion.
