On September 10, the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, AmCham Hanoi, and the Vietnam Chambers of Commerce and Industry (VCCI) hosted the 2nd annual U.S.-Vietnam Business Summit in Hanoi. The conference featured participation from Deputy Prime Minister Trinh Dinh Dung and Under Secretary of Commerce Gilbert Kaplan. The event had a digital economy focus, and included panel discussions on cybersecurity, ecommerce, innovation, supply chains and trade facilitation, as well as regional and global trade tensions. Moving forward, the Chamber, VCCI, and AmCham have agreed to form a “Digital Economy Partnership,” to advance their common interests in the development of Vietnam’s digital economy.
