HCM CITY — The International Cooperative Alliance - Asia and Pacific (ICA-AP), in collaboration with the Việt Nam Co-operative Alliance (VCA), will organise the 2nd Co-operative Registrars’ Forum on “Creating enabling legal frameworks and policies to promote sustainable development of co-operatives in the 21st century”, from April 17-19 in HCM City.

The forum will discuss trends in the 21st century and their impact on co-operatives; identify legislation and policies that affect co-operatives in relation to new and emerging areas; and exchange knowledge and best cases in the creation of an enabling environment. It will also address collaboration between government and the cooperative movement in socio-economic issues and implementation of Sustainable Development Goals. 

The forum will be attended by 220 delegates from registrars, government representatives, ICA-AP member organisations, international agencies, and co-operatives from Việt Nam.

Nguyễn Ngọc Bảo, chairman of the Việt Nam Co-operative Alliance, will speak at the conference. During the forum, the VCA will organise the four-day Trade Promotion Fair for Cooperatives 2019 from April 17 to 20 in HCM City.

As many as 350 pavilions from many countries and territories around the world such as South Korea and Japan will showcase agro-forestry and seafood products, while the remaining pavilions will display handicrafts, and industry and service products.

The agro-forestry and seafood products on display were produced under VietGAP and GlobalGAP standards, according to Bảo. — VNS
