Event Background – “The Third Wave”

Beginning slowly in 2006, there is now a “third wave” of U.S. FDI interest in modern manufacturing industry and services. In 2010, a large number of “Fortune 1000” U.S. companies visited Vietnam to assess opportunities in higher-value-added manufacturing and service industries, including electronics, automotive, chemicals, building controls. To give an idea of the scale of these U.S.-based multi-national companies, they operate in more than 180 countries, have combined annual revenues of more than $ 675 billion, and 1.8 million employees worldwide.

How can companies, business associations, and government organizations in the Southern Key Economic Region have effective policies and practices to help convert this interest in FDI to actual FDI investment?
