[WEBINAR] HOW THE RUSSIA-UKRAINE CONFLICT IS AFFECTING BUSINESSES IN VIETNAM

April 15 @ 8:45 AM - 10:00 AM

It has been one and a half month since the Russia – Ukraine crisis started. The US, EU and international community have recently ramped up sanctions against Russia, including banning the imports of Russian fossil fuels, excluding seven Russian banks from the SWIFT international payments system, or banning the exports of certain goods and services to Russia, etc. According to experts, sooner or later, this conflict may “fundamentally alter” the global economic and political order. As a country with high economic openness, deeply integrated into the global economy, Vietnamese businesses may also confront certain impacts. While it’s still early to determine long-term effects, the short-term effects may play a key role in how the economy is moving forward.

Join EuroCham at this Webinar to gain more insights on:

  • Who and which economic sectors are going to be affected by these sanctions? (For example, Tourism, Energy, Transport, and other Imports – Exports industries)
  • Chances coming to Vietnamese businesses?
  • Difficulties that Vietnamese companies may confront? (in terms of payment, transaction activities or other possible sanctions
