For over a decade, AmCham has been a strong supporter of the Vietnam Business Forum, which was financed and managed by the International Finance Corporation (IFC), a member of the World Bank Group.
In February 2012, the IFC officially transferred the coordination function of the VBF Secretariat to a consortium of 14 foreign and Vietnamese business associations, led by AmCham, EuroCham and VCCI. The Consortium established a New VBF Secretariat to coordination all day – to – day activities of the Forum. The Management structure of the VBF Consortium consists of a Management Board with seven representatives (AmCham, EuroCham, VCCI, JBAV, KorCham, IFC, HYBA). This year’s co-chairmen of the Management Board are VCCI and EuroCham.
AmCham is working to make the forum more effective at addressing the advocacy needs of our members. You are invited to participate and have your issues heard. Become involved in a VBF working group.
