Ho Chi Minh City – 24 November 2014, a Seminar on Unfair Competition Enforcement in the United States, Supply Chain and Cyber security Issues was co-organised successfully by the US Patent and Trademark Office, the US Consulate General Ho Chi Minh City and the American Chamber of Commerce (AmCham). At this seminar, attendees were updated clearly on information relating to legal recourse when exporting to the USA.
