Implications of FTAs, RCEP and TPP to capital flows
into Vietnam

Being as one of the most open economy in the World, Vietnam has been attracting a large foreign capital flow since 2005 from diverse international market participants. Although foreign capital flow has been volatile over years it is still playing a very influential role on Vietnam securities market and other channels of investments including private equity and M&A.

Meanwhile, Vietnam has signed bilateral and multi-lateral Free Trade Agreements (FTAs) and Regional Comprehensive Economic Partnership (RCEP) with many countries and regions. The negotiation process of important agreements such as the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) is near completion. The impacts of these agreements on Vietnam’s economy, what should be done to proactively take advantage of the opportunities that these agreements bring as well as to limit negative impacts, manage risks from the implementation of these agreements… will be discussed at the roundtable.

Nearly 100 participants who are negotiators, regulators, representatives of chambers of commerce, trade and investment promotion agencies together with C-level executives from the domestic and international business community will attend this Event.
