Unveiling EuroCham’s 2024 Board of Directors under the leadership of Chairman Dominik Meichle

We are delighted to introduce our 2024 Board of Directors, led by newly appointed Chairman Dominik Meichle, Managing Director of Bosch Vietnam. Mr. Meichle succeeds Gabor Fluit, whose tenure as chairman saw significant growth in EuroCham’s membership and enhanced policy advocacy efforts. Mr. Fluit departed from the role to assume new responsibilities as the Group CEO of De Heus Animal Nutrition.

In 2022, Mr. Meichle became Bosch Vietnam’s youngest Managing Director, marking a milestone in his career. Now stepping into his new role at EuroCham, he is prepared to uphold and build upon our chamber’s 25-year legacy.

Reflecting on his tenure, Mr. Fluit shared, “Transitioning from a board member, to vice-chair, and ultimately to chairman within EuroCham has been an immensely rewarding experience,” said Mr. Fluit. “As I pass the baton, I am certain that Mr. Meichle’s leadership will further deepen the Team Europe-Vietnam partnership.”

“Dedicated dialogue with all Vietnamese and European stakeholders will help us unveil opportunities for impactful collaboration and sustainable economic growth in Vietnam,” Mr. Meichle stated. “While challenges lie ahead, I am excited about the opportunities this year presents.”

EuroCham’s vision for 2024

Guided by Mr. Meichle’s leadership, EuroCham is setting a refined agenda for 2024, focusing on intensified advocacy and expanding its environmental, social, and governance (ESG) initiatives.

Advocacy at the forefront: With a 2024 plan to hold around 90 meetings with Vietnamese authorities and dispatch 200 letters informed by insights from our annual Whitebook, EuroCham is taking a proactive stance in 2024 to elevate our advocacy efforts. This includes widening our presence in Vietnam’s provinces to bolster member engagement and identify new business opportunities. A key component of this strategy is the expansion of our chamber’s Danang-based Central Vietnam Chapter, relaunched in 2023, to enhance our support network and service offerings for members in this key region.

Deepening ESG commitments: Beyond advocacy, EuroCham is dedicating increased focus to ESG principles and sustainability. This includes vital initiatives designed to raise awareness and comprehension of significant EU regulations, such as the Carbon Border Adjustment Mechanism (CBAM) and the Corporate Sustainability Due Diligence Directive (CSDDD). A specialised working group within EuroCham will be at the helm of these initiatives, promoting collaboration among business associations and spearheading capacity-building efforts for both EuroCham members and Vietnamese companies.

A highlight of EuroCham’s commitment to sustainability is the organisation of the highly-anticipated Green Economy Forum & Exhibition (GEFE) 2024, taking place October 21 to 23 in Ho Chi Minh City. This flagship platform will convene business leaders, policymakers, experts and innovators from across Vietnam, Europe and Southeast Asia for dozens of conference sessions, an exhibition showcasing cutting-edge sustainable solutions, and a high-level plenary with top Vietnamese and European officials.

Under Meichle’s leadership and with the diverse expertise of our 2024 Board, we are excited to embark on a new chapter. EuroCham remains steadfast in facilitating trade, creating opportunities, and strengthening the enduring partnership between Europe and Vietnam.
