The EU-Vietnam Free Trade Agreement was signed on June 30. Beyond lower customs duty rates, this deal will create easier market access for German food, drinks and agricultural products, food processing technology and know-how in Vietnam as well as new sourcing opportunities beyond Vietnam’s already strong export items coffee, pepper and seafood. In addition to a strong local consumer market of 97 million, Vietnam is also an ideal gateway to the emerging ASEAN region.
OAV in cooperation with SCHULZ NOACK BÄRWINKEL Rechtsanwälte PartmbB and the South-East Asia IPR SME Helpdesk of the European Chamber of Commerce in Vietnam offer a webinar to support companies – especially producers, trading companies, importers and exporters - for a successful market entry in Vietnam. For this purpose we have chosen two topics for the webinar: “The legal framework of the Vietnamese food sector” and “Keys tips for IP protection when attending trade fairs in Vietnam”. The webinar will help you to understand the legal framework for exporting food products to the country, including import procedures for different food categories, food labelling requirements as well as food advertisement, and will also outline the administrative practice of the competent authorities in the area of food safety law and the legal consequences of violations.

The South-east Asia IPR SME Helpdesk collaborated with the BELS+ project, funded by the European GNSS Agency under the European Union’s Horizon 2020, the EU Framework Programme for Research and Innovation, under grant agreement no. 776369, to organize a webinar on Intellectual Property Rights related to South-East Asia addressed to companies participating in the BELS+ project or interested in business with South-East Asia in the field of GNSS. To establish new business relations in South-East Asia, it is essential to learn key insights on Intellectual Property (IP) assets such as Trademarks, Patents, copyrights, etc.
What would you do if you know someone is using your Intellectual Properties (IP) without your authorization?
Will you take actions to enforce it, or risk losing one of your most important business assets? Noting that the South-East Asia region is a strong global manufacturing hub and a dynamic growing consumer market, it is not unusual for companies to encounter locally or regionally produced counterfeit goods and other IP infringement cases.
This webinar explores different enforcement options available in South-East Asia. Our esteemed speaker from IPKey/ARISE+ IPR provides insights on new procedures and best practices they are developing with the local authorities in terms of IP enforcement. Furthermore, you will be provided with practical case studies and key take-away messages by our External IPR expert speaker in order to best serve your needs for IP enforcement in the region.
