2. Programme Synopsis:

On August 1, 2020, the EU-Vietnam Free Trade Agreement (EVFTA) came into force, making Vietnam the second country in ASEAN, after Singapore, to have concluded a free trade agreement with the European Union. Two month later, this catalyst of opportunity remains a mystery to many companies, especially smaller ones.

What are the rules to follow to obtain a reduced customs duty? Which certificate of origin to obtain? From whom?  With a growing trade between EU and Vietnam, how can you protect your trademark in Vietnam?

The CCI France-Vietnam (CCIFV), the South-East Asia IP SME Helpdesk and the Vietnam Chamber of Commerce and Industry (VCCI), the body in charge of issuing certificates of origin in Vietnam, will take turns to shed light on the provisions of the EVFTA and thus enable you to take full advantage of this ambitious treaty. The success of EVFTA is possible only if, you, European and Vietnamese companies, understand the opportunities that this FTA offers you.
Why is this webinar for you?

  • To benefit from EVFTA’s preferential tariffs.
  • To strengthen your business strategy in Vietnam.
  • To understand the protection of trademarks, designs and innovations in Vietnam.
  • To be supported in your commercial development in Vietnam.
