Event details

Vietnamese Government has invested in infrastructure connecting the two major cities of Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh with neighboring provinces and especially areas of key economic zones in The Central of Vietnam. In order to create opportunities and employment in less developed areas, the government is providing more subsidies in term of tax incentives coupled with a low labor cost and an abundance of labor to attract FDIs flowing into these areas. With the purpose to create opportunities to expand new business production at low costs in key economic areas, VSIP in cooperation with Amcham is organizing a seminar focusing on the topic: “THE NEXT MANUFACTURING BASE IN VIETNAM”.
