Message From The Chair – May 2019

April and early May have been a very busy time for AmCham and its members.  We have continued our efforts to forge relationships and partnerships within both the U.S. and Vietnam governments.  Our business programing and committee work have also remained robust.  I am pleased to report on a few of the highlights of the past month and look ahead to some upcoming events.

Developing PPP models to aid quality healthcare

The transformation of Vietnam’s healthcare sector is racing forwards after successes in the past year, but the country’s lofty goals are still some way off. Deputy Minister of Health Nguyen Viet Tien discussed with VIR’s Bich Thuy the readiness of a legal framework, and future opportunities for private businesses that may wish to forge partnerships and expand operations in the Vietnamese healthcare system.

Making headway with draft solar power rules

On April 12, the Ministry of Industry and Trade released the third updated draft of the decision of the prime minister on the mechanism for encouraging the development of solar power projects in Vietnam. Frederick Burke, managing partner at Baker McKenzie Vietnam, updates us on the draft policy of the feed-in tariff programme from July for solar power projects in the country.
