It’s more than 15 years from Vietnam opened its retail market to foreign investors by way of its WTO commitments. Now it’s worth looking back for experiences and lessons, hopefully to help with improvements going forward.
Join us for the event co-hosted by LNT & Partners and the American Chamber of Commerce, on the key practical legal issues related to retail and distribution rights for foreign investors in Vietnam. In this event, we will focus on issues and solutions relating to crucial aspects of retail business conducted by foreign investors, including:
- Investment registration;
- Implementation of retail business;
- Establishment of retail stores;
- Intricacies around ENT removal under CPTPP and EVFTA; and
- Online retail business.
