Speaking at the event, Deputy Director of the VCCI in Ho Chi Minh City Tran Ngoc Liem said it is the first TPP handbook in Vietnam which summarises the main contents of the TPP with clear guidance for businesses. It was developed by the VCCI in close consultation with the TPP Negotiation Delegation of Vietnam.
Consul General of Australia Karen Lanyon highlighted the positive impacts of TPP, saying it will give a boost to the economy and create more employment opportunities.
According to Lanyon, the Australian government has been assisting the development of small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) in ASEAN, including Vietnam. It pledged to provide the best support for the country’s businesses in stimulating economic growth as well as in global integration.
