AusCham invites Members to share feedback on the following;

AANZFTA Certificates of Origin (CoO) issues

If you are an Importer or Exporter and experiencing difficulties providing original CoO for Australian-origin goods required under AANZFTA in order to receive preferential rates of tariff.  Please contact our office and we will place you in touch with the right people at the Australian Embassy DFAT.

Changes to Vietnamese Government policy settings effecting your business

The Vietnamese Government is making policy changes in order to deal with COVID-19 pandemic and effect on the Vietnam economy.  This includes changes that affect the ability of the Australian business community to operate in Vietnam.  A number of these changes will be necessary to help Vietnam implement its immediate health response to the crisis.  However, AusCham are keen to ensure Australian business interests are not disadvantaged by these changes once the crisis has passed.  Please pass on any concerns you may have  with respect to Vietnamese Government policy changes to me or your other contacts at the Embassy or Consulate General.
