On Tuesday, The Government of Australia, in partnership with the Vietnam Ministry of Planning and Investment (MPI) and with the support of the Australia Vietnam Policy Institute (AVPI) hosted the Australia-Vietnam Business Forum.

This event followed the inauguration of the AVPI Front Door, a physical presence in Melbourne at the RMIT Asia Trade and Innovation Hub. It was wonderful to maintain the momentum with the Australia-Vietnam Business Forum, which was facilitated by newly appointed AVPI Chair of Advisory Board, Dr Huong Le Thu. The event welcomed numerous senior government officials and business leaders from Australia and Vietnam who came together to celebrate the growing economic links between the two nations.

It was an honour to hear addresses from Prime Minister of Vietnam, H.E. Pham Minh Chinh, Assistant Minister for Manufacturing and Assistant Minister for Trade, Senator the Hon Tim Ayres, and Premier of Victoria, Jacinta Allan. Each leader shared their perspectives on the future of the relationship between Australia and Vietnam.

At the event, business leaders from Blackstone Minerals, VinaCapital and TH Group were also given the opportunity to share their business perspectives across the bilateral relationship and spoke on the opportunities available for Vietnamese businesses in Australia.

The AVPI is proud to have supported such a significant event and would like to extend our thanks to everyone who attended. It was a fantastic opportunity to connect with over 300 attendees, and gain insights into ways to enhance and capitalise on trade and investment between Australia and Vietnam.
