Ministry of Planning and Investment (“MPI”) repeatedly asked VBF’s strong support in thoroughly reviewing, bringing up and listing all difficulties, obstacles and conflicts during the implementation/adoption process of Investment & Enterprise Laws in relation/reference to other specialized Laws in all sectors such as: Laws on Land, Securities, Environment, Construction, Tourism, Banking…

The outcome will facilitate the Government to revise relevant laws in the upcoming time. This is an early stage to take actions in a great deal of our efforts in shortening list of concerns or removing restrictions that are still existing to hinder the development of business environment.

As such, VBF would kindly request for your cooperation and support in this matter and would highly appreciate your contribution for the common sake of improved environment.
