SYMPOSIUM ON VIETNAMESE SECURITY LAW AT THE HO CHI MINH CITY UNIVERSITY OF LAW
According to Resolution No. 20/2011/QH13 of the National Assembly dated 26 November 2011, the 2005 Civil Code of Vietnam will be totally reformed within the coming years.
With this in mind, the Ho Chi Minh City University of Law held an international symposium on Vietnamese security law on 29 September 2014.
The symposium was co-presided over by Professor Michel Grimaldi from University Paris II Panthéon-Assas and Professor Van Dai DO from the Ho Chi Minh City University of Law. It hosted representatives of the authorities of Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City, as well as representatives of various associations and enterprises and scholars from French, Belgian, Spanish and Vietnamese universities.
Nicolas Audier was invited to share his thoughts on the reform of Vietnamese security law. During the symposium, he spoke about the efficiency of security transactions in practice from the perspective of a foreign lawyer.
In particular, Nicolas highlighted some difficulties that investors face in practice, for example with regard to the monopoly that banks hold on mortgages over immovable property and the difficulties that lessees face to secure their rights under Vietnamese law.Edit Post Text
