Vietnam M&A Forum 2015 to be held in HCMC on August 6.
The Vietnam M&A Forum 2015 will be held on August 6 in Ho Chi Minh City, evaluating trends in M&A and analyzing opportunities in Vietnam.
The Forum features five main activities: an M&A conference, an expo, a ceremony acknowledging typical M&A cases and M&A consultants last year, an M&A training course, and the release of a report summarizing M&A in Vietnam.
In the morning session of the conference a private meeting for deal makers will also be held. In the afternoon session three topics will be up for discussion. The first is on policy, such as amendments to the Law on Investment and the Law on Enterprises, which came into effect on July 1, and the government’s policies on opening up sectors to foreign investors.
The second topic is the prospect of new capital flows and opportunities in M&A. It will look back on the movement of M&A capital flows into Vietnam and assess future prospects, analyze the possibility of an M&A boom in the country, and assess the opportunities from the State-owned enterprise (SOE) equitization process and their divestments from sectors such as seaports, airports, and others.
The final topic is M&A experiences and strategies in Vietnam, discussing successful deals in Vietnam, building and developing a business for sale, new trends, and business opportunities for Vietnamese enterprises.
Speakers at the conference will include the President of the State Securities Commission, Mr. Vu Bang, Chief Supervisor of the State Bank of Vietnam, Mr. Nguyen Huu Nghia, Chairman of KPMG Vietnam, Mr. John Ditty, and Director of Mondelez Kinh Do, Mr. Stephane Gripon.
