Ho Chi Minh City, also known as Saigon, is Vietnam’s economic and financial center. Today, Ho Chi Minh accounts for one-third of Vietnam’s GDP. This dynamic city of over 10 million inhabitants is one of the fastest growing and emerging markets in Asia-Pacific for technology, manufacturing and property developments. Annual growth of the city’s economy is at 8% year on year and positioned to be the 2nd fastest growing economy in Asia by 2021 according to Bloomberg.

As such, AmCham Vietnam, Ho Chi Minh City chapter, is excited to host the National Networking Weekend for the 1st time in its history locally in Ho Chi Minh City. We are excited to explore and enjoy some unique opportunities in the city with an American flair.

Join other AmCham Vietnam members and guests in a National Conference with the Ambassador’s discussion of key issues in Vietnam-U.S. trade and investment and outlook for 2019-2020, other insightful Workshop programming, and unique weekend networking and activities. Two days package includes Fri Welcome Cocktail Reception with Ambassador Kritenbrink, Sat Networking Lunch, Afternoon Workshop with Ambassador, Consul General, and U.S. Mission Key Officers, followed by Evening Cocktails and “Taste of America” Dinner with scrumptious cuisine prepared by four  U.S. Chefs including fine sprits and wines. The “Taste of America” Chefs dinner evening is extremely limited as the unique venue and nature of the live cooking demonstrations requires advanced registrations.
