The year 2020 marks the 25th anniversary of the normalization of diplomatic ties between the United States and Vietnam. What started as zero bilateral trade has ballooned to a nearly $60 billion trade relationship. The United States is now Vietnam’s largest export market; and, in turn, Vietnam represents one of the fastest-growing export markets for U.S. firms. With GDP growth expected to reach 6.8% in 2020 and an increasing focus by the government of Vietnam to upgrade its infrastructure in the areas of healthcare, energy, aviation, and smart cities, commercial opportunities abound for Minnesota firms; however, not without challenges.
Join a conversation with Doug Jacobson, Commercial Officer from the U.S. Commercial Service office in Minneapolis, as he provides a brief update on opportunities and challenges in doing business in Vietnam and leads a discussion on how Minnesota firms can position themselves for success in this fast-growing market.
