Press Room

Indochine Counsel Press Release

Indochine Counsel is pleased to host the 5th Annual Conference of ASEAN Legal Alliance (ALA) with the theme of "Emerging Tech and Regulations in ASEAN – Reconciling Policies and Practices", between 8 and 9 November 2018 at Le Meridien Saigon, Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam.

This year event will introduce you an overview of the busy technology revolution in ASEAN and governments' efforts in keeping pace with such unimaginable speed of change. We have lined up several speakers who are experts in their fields to share their insights with us. The world is changing very quickly and we as lawyers, accountants, professionals and business owners need to know how to embrace new technologies and how we need to change with the times. ASEAN is a hotbed for many of these new hi-tech companies. Many of our young people today are devoting their energies into these new start-ups. Today we see companies like Grab a company that was founded in Malaysia and subsequently moved to Singapore to raise more capital operating in Malaysia, Singapore, Vietnam, Indonesia and their target markets are all in ASEAN. They have bought up Uber in these countries. There will be many more of these companies that will be born and will grow to become ASEAN companies.

We look forward to welcoming as many of you as possible to Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam’s largest city and its economic powerhouse, a city filled with more than ten million people, a burgeoning economy, a rich culinary culture, a diverse gathering of international businessmen, profiteers and tourists, a city in between, home to an increasingly wealthy middle class and the attendant luxuries.

Date & time: 8:00-17:30, 9th November 2018
Venue: Le Méridien Saigon Hotel, Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam
Language: English & Vietnamese
