Understanding State-Owned Enterprises in China and Vietnam

Dr. Tuan Nguyen, one of partners at LNT & Partners, is to address the legal professional and academics with respect to the state-owned enterprises in Vietnam in plenary session. Dr. Nguyen is to focus on legal, political and economic context in which State-owned enterprises operate as well as recent efforts to reform and regulate them in China and Vietnam. The session will also discuss how these efforts may impact the Americas, particularly on a business level.

The rise of state capitalism has been attracting the attention of lawyers, economists, business leaders, and policy-makers, and state-owned enterprises are often the focus of this attention. This session examines the legal, political, and economic context in which these companies operate as well as recent efforts to reform and regulate them. This session will also consider the implications of state-owned enterprises for businesses in the Americas that are looking to invest in or work with partners in China and Vietnam.
