Seminar in Thailand [Vietnam: Integration - Opportunities - Growth]

Since Vietnam has become a full member of ASEAN in 1995, positive results in trade and investment relations between Vietnam and Thailand have been observed. Particularly, the two countries upgraded their relationship to a strategic partnership. Following The Nation - the most updated English news website of Thailand, there have been so far 2,000 Thai enterprises who wish to invest and did register with Thailand Embassy in Vietnam. Many small and medium Thai enterprises (SMEs) are developing their activities in Vietnam to obtain more shares in this potential market.

Vietnam's economy is shifting from recovery to development and integration. Vietnam has also paid more attention to microeconomic reform and the conditions for the business community to take-off. The international economic integration process has opened significant opportunities for enterprises, while highlighting motivations for reforms geared towards a market economy in the country. 

We are inviting you to the workshop “Vietnam: Integration – Opportunities – Growth”. This session will offer you an overview of opportunities in Vietnam and what advantages offered at the moment. Participants will be introduced to available opportunities, legal awareness while being shown strategic locations conducive to success.
