Economic reforms have dramatically transformed Vietnam from one of the world's poorest countries 25 years ago, to a lower middle-income country today. The country has had an average annual GDP growth rate of 6.9% since 1990 and continues to rank as one of the fastest growing Asian economies. The World Bank estimates that Vietnam, with the right economic reforms and macroeconomic variables, will see its average income more than double to USD7,000 in 15 years.

The country is at a turning point of reform and development. For foreign investors and enterprises, significant opportunities await, such as the recent conclusion of a Free Trade Agreement between Hong Kong and ASEAN, the latest development of the Comprehensive and Progressive Agreement for Trans-Pacific Partnership (CPTPP), the country's strategic supply-chain location, and China's Belt & Road Initiative. However, tough challenges remain, such as the country's weak private property and environmental protections and lack of governmental transparency.

Will the government implement much needed market reforms and will the macroeconomic opportunities sustain this new Asian tiger into the next decade?

At this event, panelists will share their latest insight on:

  • The overall investment environment in Vietnam
  • First hand investor experience on the opportunities and challenges
  • Policies that favor and challenge investment


  • AmCham is leading a delegation to Ho Chi Minh City in June 2018 to learn about the latest opportunities and meet with officials on the latest investment environment. Do not miss this chance and REGISTER now!
