    Standard Chartered’s H2 Global Research Briefing – Global & Vietnam Outlook
    August 4, 2022 7:00 am - August 4, 2022 8:00 am

    A wave of optimism came with the start of 2022 as domestic and border restrictions relaxed, regional and global economies rebounded, raising hope of an imminent return to a semblance of normality. The ongoing Ukraine war, monetary policy tightening in global economies and sustained supply chain disruptions due to military conflict and the pandemic could lead to disorderly market adjustments.

    Hear from our Global Research team as they share their views on the Global and Vietnam outlook for the second half the year, including the following highlights:

    • The risks to the global economic outlook have increased further but recession calls are premature for now
    • Global monetary tightening has accelerated as efforts to control inflation increase
    • Elevated food and energy prices remain a threat, especially for large parts of EM
    • Financial markets are more accurately reflecting these risks compared to last quarter

The country’s logistics industry has been boosted by the country’s booming GDP, rising manufacturing, and e-commerce sectors. Indeed, logistics has been among the fastest-expanding sectors in the country, accounting for around 2.5% of the total GDP. By 2025, the growth rate of this sector was forecast to outpace the growth of Vietnam’s GDP.

Vietnam aims to develop itself as an export-driven economy. By establishing economic zones and industrial parks, the government is proactively taking steps to foster manufacturing investments, which is another reason why Vietnam’s logistics industry has strong potential.

    Join us on our upcoming BritCham Vietnam Sector-Focused Webinar: Logistics in the new normal to hear sharings from our line of experts from the emerging technology trends within logistics to more details on the Customs 2030 plan – modernization of the Customs – and its impact on the logistics industry as well as recent customs issues relating to Bonded Warehouse operations.

    BritCham Vietnam Sector-Focused Webinar: Supporting Industry
    March 29, 2022 8:30 am - March 29, 2022 9:30 am

    Vietnam has undergone a substantial change in its economic structure in the last decade, shifting from agriculture to the industry and services sector. Since 2006, the service sector has had the highest share in the GDP distribution, followed by industry and construction, and agriculture.

    The supporting industries focus on the supply of raw materials, spare parts, and components to manufacturing industries, thus becoming a substantial determinant of the industrialization process of Vietnam. With the potential of becoming “the next Asian manufacturing hub”, driven by an abundant labour force and low labour cost, the FDI capital inflow into Vietnam in 2021 reached US$31.15 billion, with 58.2% going towards the manufacturing and processing sector.

    However, to maintain the FDI interest in middle and long-term local investments, it is crucial to develop a sustainable supporting industry system by increasing the localization rate and maintaining a stable supply of raw materials, components, and spare parts for the industrial sectors. High dependence on imports for the supporting industries, will lead to higher risks and increase the costs for enterprises.

    Join us on another episode of our Sector-focused Webinar Series: Vietnam Supporting Industry to have an overview of the supporting industry in Vietnam and what to expect from changes in regulations and tax incentives for companies within the industry itself.

    March 29, 2022 8:30 am - March 29, 2022 9:30 am

    Vietnam has undergone a substantial change in its economic structure in the last decade, shifting from agriculture to the industry and services sector. Since 2006, the service sector has had the highest share in the GDP distribution, followed by industry and construction, and agriculture.

    The supporting industries focus on the supply of raw materials, spare parts, and components to manufacturing industries, thus becoming a substantial determinant of the industrialization process of Vietnam. With the potential of becoming “the next Asian manufacturing hub”, driven by an abundant labour force and low labour cost, the FDI capital inflow into Vietnam in 2021 reached US$31.15 billion, with 58.2% going towards the manufacturing and processing sector.

    However, to maintain the FDI interest in middle and long-term local investments, it is crucial to develop a sustainable supporting industry system by increasing the localization rate and maintaining a stable supply of raw materials, components, and spare parts for the industrial sectors. High dependence on imports for the supporting industries, will lead to higher risks and increase the costs for enterprises.

    Join us on another episode of our Sector-focused Webinar Series: Vietnam Supporting Industry to have an overview of the supporting industry in Vietnam and what to expect from changes in regulations and tax incentives for companies within the industry itself.

    Education in the New Normal
    February 19, 2022 3:00 pm - February 19, 2022 4:30 pm

    BritCham Vietnam is delighted to organise a webinar titled “Education in the new normal” to provide insights from our experts in the education sector on their experience during the pandemic in Vietnam, how to further engage the students with the use of technology, along with educational opportunities and challenges for students in the new normal era.

    Since the beginning of 2020, the Covid-19 pandemic has severely disrupted schools across the globe. According to UNICEF, around the world schools are closed for 77 million students. Vietnam, having had a very quick response to contain the pandemic as well as having the 3rd fastest vaccination roll out program is struggling to open up its schools again and bring students back to face to face learning. Students are now subjected to inconsistent Covid-19 regulations as each province sets its own rules. This is also in the knowledge that potentially lessons could be switched back to learning online if another outbreak occurs.

    This causes educational institutions huge challenges on how they can assure education continuity throughout theses periods of uncertainty sand added regulations, with students potentially switching from online learning to hybrid, to offline learning once their area is Covid free..

    BritCham Sector-focused Webinar: Tax Finalisation
    February 16, 2022 8:30 am - February 16, 2022 9:30 am

    As the end of the financial year is approaching, many corporations may encounter difficulties in the process of showing the authorities transparency in tax reporting documents and compliance with all tax regulations. Many questions and uncertainties are raised around the procedures of tax finalising and how to minimize costs and risks.

    With escalating documentation requirements, sizeable penalties, an aggressive approach to enforcement by the Vietnamese tax authorities and a focus on corporations paying their fair share of tax, never before have companies operating in Vietnam faced so much scrutiny and challenge of their transfer pricing policies. The need to ensure full compliance with reporting obligations and put in place a transfer pricing strategy that is fit for purpose is more important than ever before.

    In this light, BritCham Vietnam presents the third episode of our Vietnam Sector-Focused Webinar Series on TAX FINALSATION with Ms Nguyen Thu Phuong – Director, Tax Services at Grant Thorton and Mr Do Vu Bao Khanh – Senior Manager at Grant Thornton. Join our panelists to gain insights on the most up-to-date information and compliance regulations on tax finalisation as well as transfer pricing.

    Integrating Responsible Business Conduct to Create a Resilient Garment Industry
    October 14, 2021 2:00 pm - October 14, 2021 3:30 pm

    OECD, in collaboration with business associations in Viet Nam AmChamAusChamBritCham and EuroCham, is holding a series of webinars on building resilient supply chain in the context of Viet Nam.

    The first webinar “Integrating Responsible Business Conduct to Create a Resilient Garment Industry” will include a brief presentation of the OECD’s Garment & Footwear Due Diligence Guidance (which will be launched in Vietnamese during the webinar), how it can help Vietnamese businesses become more resilient and future proof their place in the global supply chain.

    COVID-19 has amplified the voices from many stakeholders on the importance of rethinking global supply chains. Adopting Responsible Business Conduct (RBC) standards can help businesses become more resilient when exposed to Global Value Chains (GVC) disruptions. Responsible Business Conduct (RBC) means integrating and considering environmental and social issues within core business activities, including throughout your supply chain. A key element of RBC is risk-based due diligence – a process through which businesses identify, prevent, and mitigate their actual and potential adverse impacts on people and planet – and account for how those impacts are addressed.

    The webinar is bringing together key speakers in the garment industry including policy makers, business associations, global and domestic companies, and trade union representatives. A Business Consultation session will be available where the companies and manufacturers can share experiences and ask questions directly to the OECD and other speakers.

    Language: Vietnamese-English simultaneous interpretation will be available.

    Agenda:

    2:00 – 3:00 PMPanel Discussion
    3:00 – 3:30 PMBusiness Consultation

    Speakers:

    –       Ms. Thuy Nguyen, Vietnam Industry Agency, Ministry of Industry & Trade

    –       Mr. Nguyen Thai Duong, Vice President, Viet Nam Textile Union

    –       Ms. Dorothy Lovell, Lead, Due Diligence for Responsible Supply Chains in the Garment & Footwear Sector, OECD Centre for RBC, Directorate for Financial & Enterprise Affairs 

    –       Mr. Truong Van Cam, Vice Chairman, Vietnam Textile & Apparel Association (VITAS)

    –       Mr. Alexander Falter, General Director, ECCO Vietnam

    –       Mr. Paul Norriss, CEO, UnAvailable 

    Background:

    Viet Nam has emerged as one of the leading textiles exporting countries worldwide in recent years, becoming the fourth apparel exporting country in 2019 (by value – 30.6 billion USD). The Vietnamese garment and footwear industry accounts for 16% of the country total exports, employs 2.5 million workers. The growth of the garment and footwear sector was also boosted by Viet Nam’s increased integration into Global Value Chains (GVCs), through the coming into force of a number of trade agreements, including, the Progressive Agreement for Trans-Pacific Partnership (CPTPP) (2019), the EU – Viet Nam Free Trade Agreement (EVFTA) (2020), or the UK –Viet Nam Free Trade Agreement (UKVFTA) (2021).

    However, the COVID-19 crisis has exerted a substantial toll on economies and societies. Worldwide, general and targeted lockdown measures were implemented to contain the outbreak, which paused sections of the global economy, resulting in global trade declining by over 15% in the first half of 2020. These disrupted GVCs, leading to business closures, insolvencies and increased unemployment rates, and this perhaps nowhere more so than in the garment & footwear sector.

    In Viet Nam in particular, the initial impact of GVC disruptions has been twofold. First, Viet Nam’s economy experienced falling international demand for manufactured goods, which placed manufacturers in difficulty for meeting their wage bill as orders were cancelled or not placed. Second, the disruption of GVCs interrupted Viet Nam’s material imports, so there would be difficulty fulfilling even those orders that were placed.

    As Viet Nam’s garment and footwear sector recovers from the Covid-19 impact, adopting and integrating RBC standards throughout the sector is the key to unlocking future opportunities outside of the context of the pressing and immediate risks posed by the pandemic.

    About The Responsible Supply Chains in Asia (RSCA) Programme

    The workshop is part of the Responsible Supply Chains in Asia Programme (RSCA), a partnership between the European Union (EU), the International Labour Organization (ILO) and the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD), funded by the European Union. The RSCA works with partners in Asia to promote responsible business conduct in global supply chains.

    The overarching objectives of the RSCA Programme are to promote smart, sustainable and inclusive growth by ensuring that investors and businesses have a better understanding of corporate social responsibility; and to create policy environments conducive to promoting responsible business conduct and increased opportunities for dialogue. The programme is taking place in partnership with six Asian economies, namely Japan, China, Thailand, Viet Nam, Philippines, and Myanmar.

    LEADERS TALK: GUIDING BUSINESSES THROUGH TIMES OF CRISIS
    October 2, 2021 2:30 pm - October 23, 2021 4:00 pm

    With the world’s economy recovering from the COVID-19 crisis, managing risks and adjusting strategies for post-pandemic development have become amongst the top priorities for many businesses. However, organisations, especially small and medium enterprises, are now facing difficulties in forecasting future trends due to uncertainties caused by the pandemic. In the first half of 2021, Vietnam saw more than 70,000 businesses withdrawing from the market, an increase of nearly 25% year-on-year, and most of which were of small scale or established under 5 years.

    According to World Bank’s experts, firms that survived the COVID-19 crisis are older and more productive; they also tend to be innovators, use digital technology, and operate in less burdensome business environments. So what does it take for a business to not only survive, but also innovate and thrive in a changing future?

The webinar will be moderated by Dr. Joao Fialho – Leader of the Master of Business Administration (MBA) programme at BUV.

    ‘Guiding Businesses Through Times Of Crisis’ is the fourth episode in the ‘Leaders Talk’ series of events co-organised by British University Vietnam (BUV) and British Chamber of Commerce Vietnam (BritCham Vietnam).

    Webinar No.1 – ACHIEVING NET ZERO, CARBON MARKETS AND THEIR ROLE IN REDUCING GREENHOUSE GAS EMISSIONS, PERSPECTIVES FROM VIETNAM AND THE ASIA REGION
    September 28, 2021 3:00 pm - September 28, 2021 4:00 pm

    Standard Chartered Bank – BritCham Sustainability Webinar Series:

    Webinar No.1 – ACHIEVING NET ZERO, CARBON MARKETS AND THEIR ROLE IN REDUCING GREENHOUSE GAS EMISSIONS, PERSPECTIVES FROM VIETNAM AND THE ASIA REGION

    Organisations have increasingly joined the sustainability movement in large numbers as an initiative towards sustainable development and healthy living. Conversations around carbon neutrality – with a focus on becoming ‘net-zero’ – have been circulating in recent years, promising businesses a solution to combat climate issues.

    The concept of carbon neutrality was first strengthened by the Paris Agreement in 2015, whose main goal was to limit global warming and reduce greenhouse gas emissions. By adopting the initiative, corporates help forge a greener future through investments in renewable energy, energy efficiency, or sustainability projects that balance out carbon emissions and mitigate the impacts of climate change.

    Organisations have increasingly joined the sustainability movement in large numbers as an initiative towards sustainable development and healthy living. Conversations around carbon neutrality – with a focus on becoming ‘net-zero’ – have been circulating in recent years, promising businesses a solution to combat climate issues.

    The concept of carbon neutrality was first strengthened by the Paris Agreement in 2015, whose main goal was to limit global warming and reduce greenhouse gas emissions. By adopting the initiative, corporates help forge a greener future through investments in renewable energy, energy efficiency, or sustainability projects that balance out carbon emissions and mitigate the impacts of climate change.

    Six years into the Agreement, and the efforts were proven fruitful as more than 115 countries have submitted a new or updated NDC (Nationally determined contributions) and 6,000 major corporates have pledged to reduce gas emissions. In 2019, Britain became the first G7 country to pass net-zero emission laws, urging leaders worldwide to follow suit. As technological progress further advances and the cost of renewable energy has declined over the years, going green is no longer seen as a trade-off for economic growth, especially in Asian booming economies. In its latest discussion with COP26 President Alok Sharma, Vietnam has affirmed its goal to reach net-zero emissions in the near future, with a heavy emphasis on sustainable consumption and the green transition process in all economic sectors.

    ‘Achieving Net Zero, Carbon Markets and Their Role in Reducing Greenhouse Gas Emissions, Perspectives from Vietnam and the Asia Region’ is the first webinar in a series of events co-organised by Standard Chartered Bank (SCB) and British Chamber of Commerce Vietnam (BritCham) to promote sustainable development in Vietnam and the application of ESG among businesses. This will support participating businesses and organisations devise effective strategies for their sustainable development. These events will involve key relevant stakeholders from the government, regulators and industry thought leaders.

    I’m a British Mental Health Counsellor and Psychologist who has lived and worked in South East Asia since 2005. I see clients for many different reasons, such as depression and anxiety, suicidal feelings, trauma, finding meaning and purpose in life, cultural adjustment, and simply ‘needing someone to talk to’. I’m very happy to see clients from any cultural background, as long as they can speak English. My approach is existential and client-centred. My goal is not to direct or advise my clients, but rather to collaborate with them to help them to discover the possibilities personally available to them, and support them to find a more contented way to be themselves through making their own choices and changes. To do this, I try to understand how my clients see themselves and the world around them in order to help them to better grasp their problems, gain new perspectives and self-empowerment, and find their own solutions or ways of moving forward.

    August 18, 2021 10:00 am - August 18, 2021 11:30 am

    The fourth wave of Covid-19 has brought prolonged lockdowns and significant disruptions to businesses and supply chains.

    At this webinar, our speakers from HSBC and YouGov will take a closer look at the impact in Vietnam and, with a view of the global experiences, deal with the topic of uncertainty during the second half of 2021 as Vietnam emerges on the path of recovery.

    Women in Business series – Community Resilience & Recovery
    November 23, 2020 11:00 am - November 23, 2020 1:30 pm

    Come along and join BritCham’s Women in Business series 2020 on 23rd November
    We all have the capacity to recover quickly and effectively from challenges and crisis, but why does it seem that some of us are more resilient than others? What does resilience look like for women in the workplace? Do we need to be more resilient than men, or resilient to different types of challenges?

    🥇 BRITCHAM FUN RUN – RUN FOR VIETNAM 2020! 🥇

    Since 2000, we have raised more than VND 11 billion to benefit charities throughout Vietnam. We welcome 10,000 participants annually and this year will be one to remember!

    Our Fun Run this year will be held both in Ho Chi Minh City (15th November) and in Hanoi (29th November). We are excited to welcome representatives from the British Consulate General in Ho Chi Minh City and several Vietnamese celebrities that you might recognise.

    The generous support of over 30 partners and sponsors has allowed us to secure 2 billion VND, and with your participation, we are hoping to raise even more money to support the most vulnerable in Vietnam – many of whom have been severely impacted by the COVID-19 crisis. 100% of your donations will be distributed between 4 areas: Healthcare, People with disabilities, Education and Wildlife protection.

    Our fantastic event allows you to have fun, get fit and most importantly, to help disadvantaged groups in our community. Your involvement means more to us than ever this year.
