Frozen Lime Asia attends VietCham and NUSS Business Networking Session

 

Vietnam Chamber of Commerce (VietCham) partnered with National University of Singapore Society (NUSS) to hold a business networking session on the 27th of July 2018 at NUSS City Guild house. 

Frozen Lime Asia was in attendance, with Business Development Director Lawrence Oh and Sales Executive Leonard Chiang joining the session. 

Business insights into Vietnam was presented by Mr Rehan Anwer, Managing Director of Investment Banking APAC, Credit Suisse. He shared how Credit Suisse became the top foreign investment bank in Vietnam for 2018.

Mr Anwer also highlighted that in 2016 and 2017, Foreign Direct Investments in Vietnam showed good growth. He commended Vietnam for its rapidly-evolving financial regulatory framework, from mostly un-audited financials on SOE (State Owned Enterprise) to a hugely improved financial infrastructure which is still improving, creating trust for foreigner investors to invest in Vietnam.

Key takeaway and learning from Mr Anwer - is that humility is absolutely key when doing business in Vietnam. Diplomacy is essential when approaching prospective Vietnamese business partners.

Vietnam-fusion bites and other refreshments were served as guests engaged in active conversation over Friday evening beers.  

Thanks for hosting, VietCham and NUSS, FLA certainly made new friends and business connections!
