The European Chamber of Commerce in Vietnam, better known as EuroCham, is one the principle voices of the business community in Vietnam. The chamber was established in 1998 to help develop Vietnam into an attractive investment destination and trading partner for European business.

Since this time, both EuroCham and Vietnam have come a long way. Vietnam now boasts a more liberal economy with a young, outward looking population keen on deeper integration into the global community. In the meantime, we have developed into a fully fledged business association offering a wide range of benefits and services to our members in Vietnam.

Despite such achievements, much work remains to ensure Vietnam continues to develop as an attractive place to do business. Acting as an intermediary between our members - the business community - and local, national, regional and European authorities, we lobby on our members' behalf, advocate improvements in the business environment, raise awareness on key issues and disseminate information on doing business in Vietnam and the region.

Both local and foreign authorities have recognized EuroCham as a powerful and effective tool for business in Vietnam. We are proud holder of the Prime Minister's Award, presented to the chamber by the Vietnamese government in May 2006, in recognition of our role in helping the development of Vietnam.
