Many business events to be held on sidelines of APEC Summit
The APEC Summit is scheduled to take place in the central city of Da Nang in November under the theme “Creating New Dynamism, Fostering a Shared Future”.
Business conferences to be held by the VCCI include the APEC Start-up Conference, activities on the side lines of the Small and Medium Enterprises Ministerial Meeting, APEC Business Advisory Council, the APEC CEO Summit and several others.
Such events will offer Vietnam an opportunity to introduce updated information on the business climate in Vietnam as well as growing potential for cooperation in trade and investment in the host country to foreign enterprises.
Prior to that, numerous meetings will be held throughout the year in other Vietnamese cities including Hanoi, Ho Chi Minh City, Can Tho, Ha Long, Hue, Hoi An and Nha Trang.
VCCI Chairman Vu Tien Loc said business cooperation was an important aspect in APEC and that the Vietnamese government highly appreciated the business community’s participation in external activities along with government agencies.
Vietnam’s hosting of the APEC Summit is a good opportunity for Vietnamese enterprises to grasp global investment trends and contribute to improving the regional cooperation environment.
The APEC year is also expected to assist Vietnamese enterprises to meet and cooperate with foreign partners to participate further in the global production network.
Nguyen Minh Vu, a member of the APEC Vietnam Secretariat, emphasised that the APEC event would be a great opportunity for Vietnamese enterprises to change their mind-set and build a culture of integration over the next ten years.
