On Thursday, 11 April 2024, the AVPI hosted its first roundtable in Hanoi, which marked the conclusion of the AVPI's second roundtable series.

The AVPI together with RMIT University Vietnam, hosted a roundtable in Hanoi on what a Comprehensive Strategic Partnership (CSP) between Australia and Vietnam could achieve, exploring opportunities in trade and investment, with a focus on the visitor economy, mining, and professional services.

The roundtable was co-facilitated by Layton Pike, AVPI Co-Founder and Executive Director, International at RMIT University, and welcomed participants from Hanoi who included representatives and leaders across education, government, and industry.

With the recent elevation to a CSP, it was great to hear an update from Ms Sarah Hooper, Australia Chargé d’affaires, on the economic relationship between Australia and Vietnam. Participants discussed the necessary steps to increase awareness of the opportunities in Hanoi, providing strong insights into the role of digital innovation across the visitor economy, mining, and professional services sector.

Participants also shared realistic measures to improve the investment landscape and ways to drive better and more successful engagement between Australia and Vietnam.

This was the final roundtable across two series the AVPI has run from 2022-2024. The AVPI have hosted discussions in Melbourne, Sydney, Perth (x 2), Brisbane, Adelaide, Darwin, Launceston, Hobart, Ho Chi Minh City and now Hanoi. Thank you to all the attendees for joining us in Hanoi for the final roundtable of the second series.
