Vietnam has signed 12 free trade agreements and has become a crucial link of the economic linkage network with 55 countries. Vietnam's National Assembly passed a Resolution approving the Comprehensive and Progressive Agreement for Trans-Pacific Partnership (CPTPP). These are great opportunities for Vietnam to integrate more deeply and widely and a great platform for inviting enterprises to invest in Vietnam, including German enterprises.
