Economic Concentration Notification in M&A Transactions in Vietnam: Insights From Insiders

15 August 2023 - 09:46 AM Alternate Text


Five years ago, Vietnam introduced a revised Competition Law, and after four years of implementation, the law has brought significant changes to the country’s control mechanism on economic concentration in mergers and acquisitions transactions (“M&A”). More and more domestic and foreign companies have shown strong interest in this matter, both in terms of legal regulations and common practices. In addition, on March 29th, 2023, the Vietnam Competition Commission (VCC) under the Ministry of Industry and Trade was also officially established to centrally monitor the issue.  

In celebration of the fifth anniversary of Vietnam’s revised Competition Law, FiinGroup is honored to organize the Webinar “Economic Concentration Notification in M&A Transactions in Vietnam: Insights From Insiders”. The webinar aims to shed light on the significant changes brought about by the amended Competition Law and practices, which have been in effect for four years, impacting regulations governing merger filing in M&A transactions in Vietnam.  

With extensive experience in merger filling support, conducting independent market research, commercial due diligence in M&A transactions, providing M&A advisory services, and other related services, supporting various foreign and local corporates in successfully entering/expanding their businesses in Vietnam, FiinGroup would like to provide our valued Clients and Partners with  in-depth understanding and common practices of the current regulations regarding merger filling in Vietnam.
