Le Van Duong, partner at Indochine Counsel The Vietnamese government has applied various measures for the prevention of the pandemic such as social distancing policies, stay-at-home orders, mobility restrictions, quarantine, and community lockdowns. This has affected the normal operation of businesses, particularly affecting the organisation of physical meetings of members’ council of limited liability companies or boards of management and/or annual general meetings of joint-stock companies (together referred to as company meetings).
