During the announcement of the membership, Dr. Ngo Hai Phan – Director General of the Administrative Procedure Control Agency under Viet Nam’s Office of the Government, welcomed the participation of BritCham and expressed high recognition for the support from the UK government and the UK business community in Viet Nam’s regulatory reform process.

The Advisory Council for Administrative Procedure Reform (ACAPR) has been formed in 2013. ACAPR is tasked with advising and proposing to the Prime Minister initiatives on administrative procedure reform related to production, business, and social economics; and evaluating the implementation of the reform. The Council is an effective channel to help the Vietnam Prime Minister grasp reality, thereby making timely decisions to perfect institutions, policies, and socio-economic development.
