The discussion was held by the Meridian International Centre in D.C. and was attended by representatives from the US Department of State, a number of foreign embassies, 30 US companies, and two large US business associations.

The Vietnamese Ambassador took the occasion to update those in attendance on Vietnam’s positive outcomes in controlling COVID-19 and the Government’s strong assistance to enterprises and workers.

In order to welcome shifts in global supply chains, he went on, Prime Minister Nguyen Xuan Phuc recently agreed to establish a special working group to spur foreign investment attraction, including from the US.

He said that apart from cooperation in medicine and vaccine production, US businesses also possess advantages when investing in Vietnam’s digital trade, infrastructure, and renewable energy sectors.

Participating US firms expressed their interest in Vietnam, congratulated the country on its success in controlling the pandemic, and praised its policy on opening up and recovering its economy.
