The International Trademark Association ("INTA) and the Ministry of Science and Technology of Vietnam ("MOST") are jointly hosting an INTA Vietnam Roundtable Series under the sponsorship and logistic support by BMVN, a member of Baker McKenzie. The Roundtable Series will discuss the Vietnam legal environment for the protection of brands and upcoming intellectual property regulatory changes. The series of webinars include panelists from both Vietnam government agencies and industry key players.

I am very excited to moderate these virtual events in Vietnam. The schedule and preliminary list of speakers include:
