Last but not the least keeping in view the above I would like to state that Vietnam requires several modifications in the policy and regulation to extinguish the existing flaws in order to support the business atmosphere and as a leading business chamber in Vietnam AmCham has been working to make a difference that is acknowledged at various levels in the industry and governance throughout. Having, legal and practical experience working in Vietnam for few years now, I would be happy to contribute to the business and other goals of AmCham to the best of my abilities and it would be an interesting journey to witness gains together, benefitting the Chamber in the long run.
