In conjunction with U.S. President Joe Biden's first visit to Asia, AmCham leaders in the Asia Pacific gathered in Hanoi on May 20 to discuss important issues faced by U.S. businesses in the region.

Delivering a keynote to the Business Summit, Mr. Steven Okun, AmCham representative for the Asia Pacific, said, “AmCham members from all over Asia discussed the best ways to support strengthening the economy and trade of the United States in the region, while thoroughly solving outstanding difficulties in each industry."

AmCham Hanoi CEO Adam Sitkoff said, “Today marks our first meeting in person after more than three years of the global pandemic.”

“We are honored to welcome so many of our friends from all over the world to Hanoi. Many of them are on their first visit back to Vietnam since the pandemic began,” he added. Mr. Sitkoff also commended the leaders of the Vietnamese Government for enabling international tourism in Vietnam.

After the Hanoi visit, CEOs spent their weekend in Hue City, visiting cultural sites and meeting with provincial officials as part of AmCham Hanoi's program. This program aimed to introduce American investors to different regions of Vietnam.
