What: AmCham Event
When: Thursday, February 27, 2014, 12:00pm – 1:45pm
Where: InterContinental Hanoi Westlake, 1A Nghi Tam Street, Tay Ho District, Hanoi
Countries need good economic policies, good legal and regulatory infrastructure, transparent and efficient government agencies, and good public infrastructure to attract investment, promote trade, and spur economic and social development. AmCham continues to urge government leaders to move forward on necessary reforms to create a more competitive environment where decisions are made faster, procedures are less complicated, and rules are fairly enforced. At lunchtime on February 27, AmCham is pleased to welcome leading Vietnamese economist Dr. Le Xuan Nghia to speak to AmCham members about how banking reform, administrative procedures reform and SOE reform are moving too slowly, which harms Vietnam’s competitiveness and ability to attract high-quality foreign direct investment.
