Debriefing from U.S. Ambassador Marc Knapper for the new upgrade of VN-US relations


Recently Vietnam Partners joining at the event hosted by AmCham Vietnam HCMC & Danang gathered to welcome U.S. Ambassador Marc Knapper to Ho Chi Minh City to discuss the elevation of U.S.-Vietnam relations to a Comprehensive Strategic Partnership and its implications for U.S. businesses.

Ambassador Knapper shared highlights of the recent visit to Vietnam of U.S. President Joe Biden and summarized some of the many business-related initiatives taking place between the U.S. and Vietnam. AmCham Chair Greg Testerman said that this unprecedented and momentous elevation of ties will open opportunities to our members, and he expressed appreciation for the work done by the U.S. Mission to make the visit by President Biden an extraordinary success.

It has been an amazing month for the US-Vietnam relationship. President Biden visited Hanoi to reinforce the United States’ commitment to a strong, prosperous, resilient and independent Vietnam. Following that, Prime Minister Pham Minh Chinh visited San Francisco, Washington DC and New York City to promote increased trade and investment.

U.S. Ambassador Marc Knapper is the “center” of these two important events. He participated in both visits and contributed to deepening the friendship between the two countries. The Ambassador just returned from a business trip to the United States and shared his thoughts on the newly upgraded relationship and what it means for AmCham members. Thank you Ambassador Marc Knapper!
