The CSI 2020 has been  updated with changes to meet the requirements of important free trade agreements that Vietnam has recently signed like the CPTPP - Comprehensive and Progressive Partnership Agreement Trans-Pacific, EVFTA - Vietnam - EU Free Trade Agreement; as well as important changes in labor and environmental management policies which have a great impact on business operations. In particular,  17 Sustainable Development Goals and the National Action Plan to implement 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development have been simplified and integrated into CSI 2020 Indicators. .
