AmCham, in cooperation with VCCI and the US Chamber of Commerce, will host the 2019 US-Vietnam Business Summit: Celebrating 25 Years of Trade and Investment on May 10 in Hanoi. This important advocacy event will build on the current positive momentum in our bilateral economic relationship and will feature the release of a joint white paper recommending a concrete framework to deepen trade and investment between the US and Vietnam.
There is an opportunity to elevate and intensify the engagement between the two countries on trade issues. Recognizing Vietnam’s economic dynamism and commercial and strategic significance, the United States hopes to enhance bilateral trade relations and promote fair and reciprocal trade. At the same time, Vietnam seeks to expand trade and investment with the United States. Vietnam also sees an opportunity to benefit from shifts in regional supply chains resulting from growing tensions between the US and China and to showcase its strengths as an alternative destination for American investment. The size and rapid growth of economic ties and the tremendous economic interests both sides have in maintaining and expanding the relationship make it incumbent upon Washington and Hanoi to develop a vision for the future of the commercial relationship. The business communities in both countries want to be partners in developing this vision.
His Excellency Prime Minister Nguyen Xuan Phuc is invited to deliver the keynote address at the event. In addition, private sector leaders from the United States, Vietnam and across the region will participate along with a number of other Vietnamese government officials. Key discussion topics will include:
- Promoting sustainable investment and stable policies
- Driving future growth through the Digital Economy
- Using the Internet Economy to fuel growth and innovation
- Addressing energy development needs
- Global trade dynamics
- Fintech and financial inclusion
