International Business Forum 2020

Amid the oncoming global recession caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, Vietnam continues to show some positive signs of growth. This performance is as remarkable as its success in resisting the pandemic. Yet Vietnamese firms must still adapt to the increased competitiveness brought about by newly-signed free trade agreements and the changes in practice and performance caused by the virus. At this forum, experts will discuss how Vietnamese firms will have to adapt to this new normal in order to become and remain successful.
