The construction industry in Vietnam, mirroring global trends, is witnessing significant transformations, with sustainability and innovation at the forefront. The EuroCham Construction Sector Committee, established in July 2023, is playing a key role in this dynamic landscape. 


A prominent industry voice, the Construction Sector Committee now has 20 active members focusing on five working groups: Sustainable cities & building, Firefighting, Best practices, Standards, and Land use.


The Construction Sector Committee’s formation marks a step in bridging the gap between the public and private sectors. Providing expert opinions to the government on legislative issues and construction-related issues, the committee encourages the industry to become more sustainable and environmentally conscious.


Advocacy goals: stability, sustainability, and safety


At its core, the committee’s advocacy is threefold: 

  • Firstly, to establish a stable regulatory framework for the construction industry in Vietnam. 
  • Secondly, to promote best practices and international standards, thus enhancing skills and contributing to the industry’s sustainable development. 
  • Lastly, to foster innovation, investment, and collaboration, with a keen focus on safety, quality, and environmental responsibility. These goals are crucial in cultivating a thriving construction sector that contributes to Vietnam’s economic and social development.
