The trade and business links between Singapore and Vietnam have gone from strength to strength over the years.

With an economy that is forecast to grow by 6.3 per cent next year, Vietnam represents a hotbed for Singaporean investment.

Singapore is Vietnam's third-largest investor, coming in behind Japan and South Korea.

It is also Vietnam's sixth-largest trading partner.

As Vietnam's economy matures and its consumer market grows, providing food and lifestyle services and urban solutions are potential fields that Singapore companies can venture into.

SBF has convened a seminar on the opportunities and projects in Thua Thien Hue province, a leading economic zone of central Vietnam.

To register, send your name, designation, company, contact e-mail and industry to Ms Alaxys Liu (alaxys.liu@sbf.org.sg) and Ms Loi Min Qian (minqian.loi@sbf.org.sg).

Registration closes on Jan 10 at 5pm.
