please help me to understand about it

Vietnam government already made many changes in the law on investment and enterprise, which encourage foreign investment to Vietnam. Although some limits for foreign business, I can see the effort and create opportunities for expats to do business in Vietnam.
And now, a foreigner can hold a 100% foreign owned business in Vietnam, but there are some factors control the process of business set up in Vietnam:
+ Business fields (whether it is prohibited or required conditions to process, it is following WTO Commitment and Vietnam law on investment which declares 267 conditional business fields)
+ Product (whether it is prohibited or need any license to distribute in Vietnam)
+ Nationality of owner (Seldom)
+ Location (sometimes, for some industries, starting a business in Hanoi (capital) is easier than in other cities)
For any foreign owned business in Vietnam, the steps of setting up your business could be listed as:
a, Step 1: Obtaining Certificate of investment registration
It allows you to invest in Vietnam
b, Step 2: Obtaining Certificate of business registration
It allows you to open company in Vietnam
c, Step 3: Post license procedure
opening company bank account, company stamp, tax registration
d, Obtaining other licence
There are some conditional business fields that require foreign business to acquire before start business in Vietnam. Please send me your business plan, I will help you to check whether your business is prohibited or require any conditions.

Dear Timmy,
For your information, trading or commodity distribution is now a conditional business field in Vietnam. Beside the normal procedures of a foreign investment in Vietnam, you will need to acquire the business license, as a additional compulsory license to operate your trading/distribution business. This license will allow you to import commodity to Vietnam, distribute in Vietnam.
The business license will be issued by The city People of Committee, in time 15-30 business days.
I know you might think it is so long for a business license, but it is a requirement.
Fortunately, I am seeing many changes from the city authority, they are applying many new policies, that might make a better business environment.
I hope this answer make you understanding about the Business license issue. If there is any further query, please post here or let me know via message.
Thank you.
