#18: Supply Chain in Vietnam post COVID-19
The COVID-19 pandemic has put significant impacts on supply chains worldwide and negatively affected global operations. Vietnam itself has not been spared as several prevention measures have been implemented to contain the pandemic. These measures have caused a large-scale disruption of business activities and have reportedly led to massive interruptions and bottlenecks of supply chains in many cities and provinces across the country, where major industrial parks are located. As a result, many manufacture enterprises are unable to obtain sufficient raw materials and then fall into the production standstill. Component shortages, production interruption, etc. due to social distancing policies have led to a severe decrease in Vietnam’s transport, logistics, and export value chain. Let's join Marko Walde and Chi Pham - our hosts in this episode together with our valued guests , Ms. Thanh Bong, from Karl Gross, and Mr. Nguyen Xuan Ky, the CEO and General director of Cai Mep International Terminal discussing on the current situation and how to be resilient and to re-open the economy in Vietnam sustainably. #PartnerInVietnam

#17: INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY: How important is it for investors in Vietnam?
Vietnam is the EU’s 2nd largest trading partner and the German largest one among the 10 ASEAN nations. Conversely, The EU is among the Vietnam’s top 4 largest trading partners and Germany is the most important partner country in the EU. In term of FDI, the largest sector of investment by the European companies is industrial processing and manufacturing. The EVFTA - EU-Vietnam Free Trade Agreement officially entered into force in August 2020 and cover tariff as well as non-tariff barriers to trade and other trade related aspects including public procurement, regulatory issues, competition, services, intellectual property rights and sustainable development. For Vietnam, the tariff elimination will benefit key export industries. On the other hand, European companies will also have better access to Vietnam’s emerging and potential market with a population of nearly 100 million. However, the Vietnamese market is now a level playing field and its partners are from very high-developed countries, which requires Vietnam to play to a higher standard. To that end, there are many changes Vietnam is expected to make, and to improve its intellectual property rights (IPR) system is a key part. IPR protection is indeed very important to EU companies and they all have a high demand for IPR protection and would expect Vietnam’s IPR law and practice to help enforce their rights effectively. >>Therefore, we have Mr. Benoît Tardy, IP Business Advisor and Ms. Nora Bihari, the Project Manager of South-East Asia IP SME HELPDESK and Dr. Torsten Seeger of the ConsultToSee, as our guests today, sharing their experiences and best practices in Vietnam, in order to inform you the overview of Vietnam’s IP and to help you well prepared in doing business in Vietnam.

#13: Vietnamese Coffee: Delicious and Fair Trade
DO YOU KNOW? Vietnam is the world’s second largest producer and exporter of coffee and the biggest coffee exporter to Germany. Vietnam is a country located in Southeast Asia with tropical and subtropical climate. There is a large area of red soil basalt suitable for coffee growing which was brought by the French in 1857. By the early 2000s, Vietnam became the second largest producer and exporter of coffee beans in the world. At the moment, Vietnam's coffee industry is facing severe challenges such as climate change; competition from other crops; need to replace ageing coffee trees; production costs are increasing higher while world coffee prices are at very low levels. Due to intense competition, Vietnam's policy of coffee production has shifted to a new era with two objectives: firstly, to maintain its position as the world’s second largest producer and exporter of coffee green beans; secondly, to double the added value in coffee production by increasing productivity, quality and value addition. It meant FAIR TRADE COFFEE PRODUCTION. Having a system of fair-trade certification for coffee would boost exports to Europe and Germany currently. Vietnam ‘s coffee exports to the EU saw an increase during the first seven months of 2020. The EU represents the second largest market for Vietnamese coffee and accounts for over 42% of the country’s coffee exports. The new EU-Vietnam free trade agreement (EVFTA), which came into effect on August 1, opens up opportunities to further boost Vietnam’s coffee exports to the European Union, which is the world largest coffee market. We will talk in this episode on the fair trade coffee in Vietnam and how the fine Robusta from Vietnam could enter the European and German markets effectively and sustainably. We have our guest today, Ms Trang, the business owner of Valley Coffee – a branding of fair trade coffee from Lam Dong Province and our episode will be hosted by Marko Walde, Chief Representative of AHK Vietnam.All information on Valley Coffee: http://valleyscoffee.vn/#Home
