HÀ NỘI — The Vietnam Business Summit 2019 (VBS 2019), one of Vietnam’s largest international business-related events, opened in Hà Nội today.
The event is being held in parallel with the 10th Asia Business Summit (ABS) also in Hà Nội on October 17. Both events are hosted by the Vietnam Chamber of Commerce and Industry (VCCI).
Prime Minister Nguyễn Xuân Phúc is slated to be among key speakers at the VBS 2019, which has attracted 600 delegates, including 200 CEOs of international businesses and corporations, and a Japanese business delegation.
Under the theme "Vietnam-A Trusted Business Partner in the Digital Age”, discussions at the VBS 2019 will focus on scientific and technological innovations, the shift of human resources in a digital age, and many opportunities for Việt Nam.
The event will also provide the chance for domestic businesses to connect with international partners and share potential cooperation projects.
The VBS was first held at the APEC Summit in 2017. Following that success, the VCCI was assigned by the Prime Minister to organise VBS-2018 on the sidelines of the 2018 WEF ASEAN Conference in Vietnam. — VNS
