Lunch Seminar: Vietnam – The Next Manufacturing Hotspot
Lunch Seminar: Vietnam – The Next Manufacturing Hotspot

The Italian Chamber of Commerce is glad to invite you to this inspiring lunch about manufacturers in Vietnam.

In recent years, Vietnam has emerged as one of the key locations in ASEAN for manufacturers seeking to reduce costs and diversify their supply chain due to economic currents and moving supply chains.

With its large young working population and a strong network of trade agreements, Vietnam has been one of the key recipients of these FDI flows. In addition, Vietnam provides a gateway for companies to access to its market and other ASEAN countries.

This seminar aims to provide participants with an update of the business opportunities and advantages of manufacturing in Vietnam. In addition, participants will be introduced to the current tax incentives, labor framework, and key manufacturing locations.

*Please note that this event is sold-out.
