CanCham - Canadian Chamber of Commerce in Vietnam



12th Annual Crystal Ball Business Luncheon - The Year Ahead: Expert Predictions And Impact 2017

Vietnam has been labelled Asia’s “Outperformer” in terms of its 2016 economic growth. The country continues to outshine its Asian neighbors in attracting foreign direct investment, driving exports and manufacturing growth, and has built up a trade surplus not seen in a decade. However, are we being blinded by the bright lights, or is there a tempest brewing in Vietnam’s economic future?


Come and join Cancham’s 12th Annual Crystal Ball Business Luncheon "The Year Ahead: Expert Predictions and Impact 2017," as we explore the realities of Vietnam’s sunny global outlook in contrast to some of the hottest topics impacting Vietnam’s domestic economy today. Gain genuine insight into what the year of the Rooster has in store for Asia’s last tiger economy.
