Vietnam’s policies and practices regarding protection for intellectual property rights (IPR) is a legitimate and key concern for US companies already or wishing to do business with Vietnam. From the standpoint of Vietnam’s own self-interest, recognition of intellectual property rights is essential in creating a safe digital economy in Vietnam so the economy and Vietnamese citizens can benefit. A lack of robust enforcement discourages foreign companies from transferring their best technology and proprietary know-how to Vietnam. For Vietnam to attract high-technology value-added manufacturing, as well as develop its human resources by inspiring innovation and creativity within the Vietnam population as a whole, significant improvement in the enforcement of intellectual property rights is urgently needed. Building on last year’s successful event, AmCham and the US Embassy, in cooperation with the Ministry of Science and Technology, are hosting the US Ambassador’s Roundtable Discussion on Intellectual Property Rights on the morning of November 7 to focus on trends in IP protection and enforcement in Vietnam. Attendance at this event is free-of-charge for AmCham members and is part of AmCham’s commitment to working with our partners in the Vietnamese government to improve the business climate. Attendees will include prominent US and Vietnamese government officials, industry experts, service suppliers and customers, relevant media, and Vietnamese enterprises. Hosting these types of events is not possible without financial support from the private sector. For information on sponsorship and speaking opportunities, please contact Adam in the AmCham office.
