New policies implemented by the Vietnamese Government to manage challenges and ensure sustainable growth were introduced at a seminar in Paris, France on February 10.

The event, co-organised by the Vietnamese Embassy in France and the Centre for Asian Studies under the French Institute of International Relations, aims to update French scholars, economic experts and the business community of Vietnam’s recent economic reforms to maximise its strengths and overcome challenges to sustainable growth.

It also advised participants of the new regulations of the Law on Investment and the Law on Enterprises, as well as information on the European Union-Vietnam Free Trade Agreement (EVFTA) and the Trans-Pacific Partnership Agreement, both of which Vietnam is currently negotiating.

In his presentation at the seminar, Associate Professor Dr. Nguyen Duc Khuong from the IPAG Business School in Paris noted that Vietnam has carried out reforms in its legal and education systems, business climate, and tax structure to ensure smooth integration in the region and the world.

He also pointed out the current difficulties and challenges facing the country and stressed the need to optimize the effectiveness of strategic partnership agreements signed between Vietnam and 13 of its counterpart nations.

Oliver Massmann, General Director of Duane Morris Vietnam LCC, delivered a speech highlighting Vietnam’s efforts to implement strong development reforms, including an overview of Vietnam’s economy and its remarkable results in 2014.
The event offered a valuable opportunity for French businesses to get an insight into Vietnam, encouraging them to partner with and expand their investment in Vietnam in the future.-VNA
