After several company visits, the exploreASEAN delegation members concluded their business experience with a workshop at the Continental Hotel in Ho Chi Minh City. Starting with an introduction speech of the Swiss Consul General, the delegation members had the opportunity to learn from the knowledge of the experts and ask questions at different round-tables during the workshop. Topics such as ‘networking in Vietnam’, ‘current issues faced by the service industry’ and ‘current situation of the labor force in Vietnam’ were given as a starting point for the round-table discussions. Nonetheless, the delegation members were able to lead the discussions in different directions based on their interests. External participants working for different companies such as DKSH, Straumann, Dragon Capital and ELCA were invited as experts. Given this diversity of branches which was represented at the workshop, the discussions covered topics about financial services, dental implants and the current labor situation in Vietnam. According to several discussions, one of the big business opportunities in Vietnam lies in the private equity sector. Furthermore, the delegation used the opportunity to network during several coffee breaks and a final lunch with all the members of the workshop.

Beside exploring business opportunities, the delegation got the possibility to visit some cultural places in the afternoon.
