EuroCham’s Sector Committees provide an effective advocacy forum for our members to address common affairs through voicing business interests to the Vietnamese Government. Sector Committees are an integral part of EuroCham’s advocacy activities. Their work includes the drafting of EuroCham’s position papers and subsequently forms the basis of EuroCham’s Whitebook and advocacy mandate.
Sector Committees are not legal entities, but internal working groups of EuroCham, and are as such subject to Sector Committee rules and regulations; and the provisions of the EuroCham Statutes as well as the Laws of Vietnam.
Once officially approved and established, Sector Committees are essentially autonomous. Different Committees independently set their advocacy goals, define their membership fee and decide their internal working procedure. In addition to issuing an annual position paper on main issues affecting Sector Committees’ business in Vietnam, the Committees are also encouraged to generate events (luncheons, seminars and dialogues) and other public affairs initiatives on behalf of EuroCham.
