Vietnam proves its position as a fast-growing manufacturing hub and an important link in the supply chain because of its great openness by participating in 17 bilateral and regional FTAs, including the Comprehensive and Progressive Agreement for Trans-Pacific Partnership (CPTPP), the EU-Vietnam Free Trade Agreement (EVFTA), and the Regional Comprehensive Economic Partnership (RCEP). The commitments in these FTAs put higher compliance requirements on businesses to ensure sustainable labour, social and environmental conditions. The Covid-19 outbreak also revealed the urgent need for business continuity readiness and resilience to overcome difficulties and recover the disruption of the supply chain. There has been another push by regulations around corporate sustainability due diligence, namely German Act on Corporate Due Diligence Obligations in the Supply Chains (LkSG) as of January 1, 2023 and upcoming Directive of European Union on Corporate Sustainability Due Diligence. Such legislation requires companies to assess and mitigate risks of violation of labour and environmental standards throughout their supply chains.
