In Vietnam, businesses in every sector and of every size are increasingly dependent on a secure, stable and trusted Internet to carry out their daily operations. This is why AmCham strongly supports the government’s objective of promoting the development of the Internet and digital economy in Vietnam while ensuring data security and the protection of Vietnamese Internet users.
Last summer, Vietnam’s National Assembly approved a controversial Cybersecurity Law containing a number of problematic provisions. Our member companies have closely followed the new Cybersecurity Law and we look forward to commenting on the next draft implementing decrees. Together, with our partners in the government, we believe there is a way forward to achieving an open, innovative, and secure online environment that fosters commerce. Ensuring the free flow of data is very important and we look forward to working with Vietnam’s leadership on policy approaches that advance the government’s objectives while minimizing disruption to businesses, the economy, and Vietnam’s development.
On August 9 in Ho Chi Minh City, the Ministry of Public Security is organizing a conference to discuss the Cyber Law. Participants will include officials from the Ministry of Public Security, the Network Security Agency, representatives from business associations, and research institute leaders.
