European firms optimistic about Viet Nam’s business environment

European companies have expressed optimism about the business environment in Viet Nam during a recent meeting with the press, Cong Thuong (Industry & Trade) newspaper reported.

A survey on Viet Nam’s business environment in the fourth quarter of 2016 has revealed that the European Chamber of Commerce in Viet Nam (EuroCham) was positive about its operations in the country.

Nearly 73 per cent of the European businesses have given the thumbs up to their operations in Viet Nam, and only 5.5 per cent were pessimistic.

Up to 90 per cent of companies said they would maintain or increase investment in the Southeast Asian country, while 56 per cent said they planned to keep or increase the number of employees, and a mere 6.7 per cent said they planned to reduce staff.

The European chamber has held various activities to encourage enterprises to invest in Vietnamese localities such as Buon Me Thuot in the Central Highlands province of Dak Lak and the northern port city of Hai Phong, along with other Central Highlands provinces.

It established a branch in the central region to help businesses step up investment in Quang Nam, Da Nang and Thua Thien – Hue, and hopes to set up more branches in Hai Phong and other localities.

This year, the chamber will accelerate the enforcement of the EU-Vietnam Free Trade Agreement (EVFTA) and clear up concerns raised by European firms, as well as host more dialogues among Vietnamese government representatives, ministries and agencies, and European companies.

EuroCham expects the Vietnamese government to further improve the business environment and increase the competitiveness of the economy.

The chamber will come up with measures to help businesses implement the EVFTA.

EuroCham’s Whitebook 2017 highlighting issues relevant to trade and investment in Viet Nam is scheduled to be launched on March 2 this year.

The first issue that can’t be answered is the health of Thailand’s beloved King Bhumibol, who is now 83 years old. He is the world's longest reigning monarch, but elaborate birthday celebrations in December failed to mask concern over his health. More
