Event Description

Gain insights on prospects for Vietnam’s economic recovery from an all-star panel of experts: Dean of Fulbright School of Public Policy and Management and Prime Minister Economic Adviser Dr. Vu Thanh Tu Anh; Managing Partner of McKinsey & Company Vietnam Marco Breu; VinaCapital Chief Economist Michael Kokalari; and Cimigo Managing Director Richard Burrage.

Vietnam’s impressive management of the COVID-19 outbreak positions it for an early economic recovery.  Even in Q1, it registered 3.8% growth, and some forecasts estimate near 5% growth for 2020, which would make it one of the fastest growing economies in the region, if not the world.  While challenges remain due to the dearth of international tourists and the fall in demand in export markets, domestic demand and consumer spending is rebounding.  Vietnam has become an even more attractive destination for FDI as MNCs seek to diversify their global supply chains.  Vietnam’s digital transformation and policies to promote clean energy offer additional opportunities.

Join virtually or in-person for the panel discussion and Q&A session moderated by AmCham Vietnam-HCMC Executive Director Mary Tarnowka.  Those who attend in real life can join a follow-on cocktail networking session, continuing discussions with our panelists – and reconnecting with colleagues and friends.
