M&A activities in Vietnam set new record high with a big jump in total deal value to US$10.15bn in 2016, increasing by almost 95% compared to the previous year. This demonstrates very strong capital inflows into Vietnam via M&A channels, and poses many opportunities for investors who are considering expanding business in Vietnam.

Our partner, StoxPlus, is one of the leading financial and business information providers in Vietnam, and has in-depth reports about Vietnam M&A market trends for years and has advised foreign firms from Japan, Korea, Thailand to successfully enter into the local market in a variety of sectors.

They will share the most updated information about the major development in M&A activities, key sectors, and especially discuss future investment opportunities from SOE (“State-owned Enterprise”) equitization process. This is a unique opportunity for SBG members and other chambers to get more insights about the investment trends and provides inputs for your business expansion in Vietnam.
