Vision and Mission


The Italian Chamber of Commerce in Vietnam (ICHAM) was established in 2008. From a small group of Ialian businessmen working in Vietnam, ICHAM has developed into an organization of more than 90 members (as of December 2019) with two offices in Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City and was officially recognized by the Italian government as a member of the Assocamerestero (Association of Italian Chambers of Commerce Abroad).

What we do

Since the beginning, ICHAM has set out its mission in promoting economic cooperation between Italy and Vietnam through a variety of trade missions, business services and events.

  • Trade missions: we organize incoming visit to Vietnam of Italian institutional/business delegations, and at the same time, visit to trade fairs in Italy of Vietnamese buyers.
  • Business services: we offer support to both Italian and Vietnamese companies in finding potential partners including: market study, match-making research, arrangement of B2B meetings.
  • Events: besides networking events to connect members and Italian companies in particular, and European community in general, we built our name through successful workshops and technical seminars (eg. 2018’s Workshop “Introducing a new paradigm in Non Invasive Ventilation: The Helmet” , 2017’s Seminar “Vietnam – Italy Trade Promotion” – just to name a few).
