First and foremost, the Ministry of Industry and Trade of Vietnam expresses our appreciation for the continuous contribution to economic and trade cooperation between Vietnam and the United States and to our annual Vietnam-U.S. Trade Forum. It has become a well-known annual event for about 6 years now, chaired by MOIT Leaders in cooperation with the U.S. Embassy in Vietnam, AmCham, USABC, and other related parties.
Recently, Vietnam and the United States have elevated their relationship to a comprehensive strategic partnership, opening new opportunities to develop trade and investment relations between the two countries. We are going to organize the Vietnam-U.S. Trade Forum 2023 with the following details:
- Theme: “Upgrade Relationships – Relaunch Businesses”
- Date & Time: November 21, 2023, 8:00 AM – 12:00 PM
- Venue: New World Saigon Hotel, 76 Le Lai, District 1, HCMC, Vietnam
We hope that the event will be a good chance to promote both import-export and investment relations between Vietnam and the U.S. business community.
