The Chamber of Commerce and Industry Portugal - Vietnam follows the non - profit Association model, whose executive or administrative body is assigned to the Board. The supervision and accompaniment of CCIPV's activity is exercised by its three other Governing Bodies (the General Assembly, the Fiscal Board and the Advisory Board).
The model created is based on an organic balance that results from the consideration of the role that the members of each governing body can enrich in the administration, supervision and management of the Chamber of Commerce.
