Special Seminar by Dr Dang Kim Khoi: New approach to Vietnam and Australia’s agricuture trade and investment in uncertain world
Agriculture is a critical component of the vibrant trade between Australia and Vietnam. While this trade relationship has recently witnessed some developments, the uncertain future of Trans-Pacific Partnership Agreement (TPP) has raised questions of how the two countries can overcome challenges and grasp opportunities without the US commitment to the regional trade.
Dr Khoi Dang, John Dillon Fellow, and Director of the Centre for Agriculture Policy, Institute of Policy and Strategy for Agriculture and Rural Development, Vietnam, will present a ‘novel’ and ‘smart’ trade and investment approach to take advantage of the main strengths of both countries.
He will review major trends in the agricultural sectors of the two countries with some descriptive analyses. In particular, Dr Khoi Dang will explain the main strengths and weaknesses of Vietnamese and Australian agriculture, and the similarities. He will also introduce a new approach to trade and investment and provide policy recommendations.
