They pledged to create the best possible conditions for the US enterprises, especially in land use tax and human resources.
On December 10, Nhan and his entourage met with lawyers of McDermott Will & Emery LLP (MWE), to talk about matters regarding the US’s start-up policies, and visited 8CV Company.
