Leverage Vietnam's Free Trade Agreements & expand your global reach

It is critical that business leverage free trade agreements for global supply chains in a post-pandemic world.

Sept Ai Vietnam

In the recent Ai Group CEO Survey for 2023, business leaders identified two main challenges afflicting Australian industry: skills shortages and supply chain. Supply chain disruptions were the top factor shaping business investment plans with companies focusing on internal measures to improve supply chains. Top strategies include building inventories/lead times and optimising operational processes. Many will increase sales prices or attempt to move some production in-house.

So what strategies are you putting in place to ensure supply chain resilience?

Note: This is a FREE event for Australian businesses. However, registration is necessary to secure your spot.

Why attend:

Global supply chains were affected by the recent pandemic with goods and supplies shortages, temporary trade restrictions, port closures, and unexpected customs duties impacted the supply chains hard. Therefore, it is critical that business leverage free trade agreements for global supply chains in a post-pandemic world.

With globalisation comes a new era of trade, and Australia’s FTAs with Vietnam make it easier than ever before for businesses to grow their revenue and become global brands in this market and beyond.

Vietnam’s FTAs has also enabled its economic development to shift away from exporting low-tech manufacturing products and primary goods to more complex high-tech or advanced manufacturing goods.

Vietnam is boosting its competitiveness by diversifying its sourcing partners through larger trade networks and more-cost effective imports of intermediate goods from partner countries. Some of Vietnam's recent FTAs have extended its trade integration partners well beyond Asia, and enabled Vietnam to take advantage of reduced tariffs, both within the ASEAN Economic Community (AEC) and with the EU and US to attract global brands to produce in Vietnam and export to markets outside the ASEAN regions.
