The Western Australia Vietnam Business Council (WAVBC) is based in Perth, Western Australia and is a ‘not for profit operation’. The original WAVBC was founded in 2003 but ceased operation around 2008. The appointment of a Perth based Vietnam Consul General to Western Australia in 2012 rekindled West Australian interest in Vietnam and the existing WAVBC was reformed in early 2016.
Development of Information and Services
It is still very early days with the development of the reformed WAVBC with our initial focus being to establish the administration and marketing functions. We view 2017 as a year to grow our membership and identify just what information and services our members would like us to provide.
We welcome suggestions for events with guest speakers and we actively seek sponsors to assist us with funding such events. Over the next twelve months we will also commence the process of providing meaningful and relevant information to those members who wish to commence trade with Vietnam in the coming future.
Vietnam remains an emerging economy and with already strong relationships between Australia and Vietnam the committee of the WAVBC are determined to assist with the development of more relationships.
