We are thrilled to express our gratitude to all nearly 90 participants who joined us at our recent "Insights on the Vietnamese Economy: Key Drivers, Challenges and Prospects" luncheon, co-hosted by EuroCham and BritCham. At this luncheon, we had an insightful discussion on the development picture of Vietnam in 2022 and the outlook for 2023.
The event was opened by Mr. Minh Nguyen, Vice Chairman of EuroCham, and by Mr. Christopher Jeffery, Board Member of BritCham.
At the luncheon, the following esteemed speakers shared their insights on the key drivers for Vietnam's strong economic performance in 2022, as well as the challenges faced by policymakers in 2023:
- Dominic Scriven, Chairman at Dragon Capital Group Limited
- Dr. Luc Can Van, Chief Economist of BIDV & President of BIDV Training and Research Institute
- Hieu Phan Duc, Thai Binh Delegate at Vietnam's National Assembly
The discussion covered topics such as the effective control of exchange rate and inflation, significant trade surplus, and the prospects of maintaining high GDP growth in 2023 amidst a global economic downturn, reduced demand for exports, and the challenges of foreign reserves and layoffs.
