The structure of the Whitebook is designed to provide a concise view of the business environment and the issues affecting European businesses in Vietnam. In line with this objective, the Whitebook is divided into 3 Parts. The Whitebook 2018 also assesses how these concerns specifically affect Vietnam, for example, through impact on trade, growth or employment. For each chapter in the Whitebook, EuroCham has asked members engaged in our 16 Sector Committees to focus on the discussion of key issues they believe the Vietnamese Government should address as a priority. Finally, the chapters put forward specific recommendations to help improve the current situation or resolve relevant challenges.
The 2018 Whitebook has one (1) dedicated chapter on the EU-Vietnam Free Trade Agreement (EVFTA) which includes all the EVFTA-related issues raised by EuroCham’s Sector Committees to the Government. It also has one (1) chapter describing some of the highlights of our advocacy work over the last decade. There are twenty-eight (28) chapters in total; including one (1) chapter on the EVFTA, eleven (11) cross-sectoral chapters and thirteen (13) sectoral chapters. These are organised in alphabetical order.
