Navigating the fourth wave: a Dutch perspective on travel, people safety and business continuity in Vietnam

The fourth Covid-wave has an enormous impact on all of us, and it is unclear when it ends. With both Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City in a state of lockdown, it is helpful to touch base with each other, and talk about the occurrences from a Dutch perspective. Therefore, the Dutch Business Association Vietnam DBAV, together with the Embassy and KLM-Air France hosts a special edition of our weekly Covid-19 Journal. This Journal is for the whole Dutch community to attend, not just DBAV-members.


  • Alexander Koch, Chair of DBAV and Managing Director at Heineken Vietnam
  • Elsbeth Akkerman, Ambassador of the Netherlands to Vietnam Embassy 
  • Nicolas Ricard, Country Manager Vietnam at KLM- Air France
  • Guido van Rooy, Executive Director at Dutch Business Association Vietnam (moderator)

The panel will discuss travel restrictions, flights, vaccinations, people safety, Dutch government information, and business continuity. We will also cover the traditional topics such as flights, and paperwork because the panel members take part in the weekly journal. The target group is the whole Dutch community, not just DBAV members.
