The Chamber has been proactively working with many key partners such as EU Delegation to Vietnam, Ministry of Industry and Trade, (Viettrade and MUTRAP), Ministry of Foreign Affairs, domestic associations (VCCI, Vietnam Business Forum) and other institutions. In his speech, Mr. Ruebbert mentioned the significant impacts of EVFTA in EU-Vietnam relations and trade and the urge of ratification of EVFTA in a timely manner in order to boost not only trade and investment but also brings a new attitude towards business.

We promote European sustainable investment and trade through good corporate citizenship, collaboration and engagement with the Vietnamese society. We support the European businesses community to connect with the Vietnamese Government and authorities to advocate for and to improve the business environment. We thereby contribute to Vietnam’s sustainable development and growth" ,said Mr. Ruebbert.
