EVIPA will encourage Vietnam to improve its institutions and policies, making the country’s investment and business environment more transparent and welcoming.

The EVIPA, signed between the European Union (EU) and Vietnam on June 30 last year in Ha Noi, is expected to create a favorable environment for Vietnam to attract further investment in categories where the EU holds strengths, such as finance, telecommunications, transport, distribution, processing, hi-tech manufacturing, and clean and renewable energy.

According to the Ministry of Planning and Investment, the implementation of the commitments in the EVIPA, which was ratified by the National Assembly earlier this month, will encourage Vietnam to improve its institutions and policies, making the country’s investment and business environment more transparent and welcoming.

The deal will offer opportunities for local enterprises to acquire technologies and skills transferred by partners in the EU, improving the competitiveness of the national economy, the ministry said, adding that Vietnam should complete early warning mechanisms to address investment disputes.
