The Vietnam Private Sector Economic Forum 2019 opened in Hanoi on May 2, aiming to review the implantation of a resolution on making the private sector an important part of the socialist-oriented market economy in Vietnam over the past two years.

PM Nguyen Xuan Phuc speaks at the forum

Co-chaired by the Government and the Central Economic Committee, the event was co-organised by the Research Department for Private Economic Development and event organizer IEC Group, along with VnExpress.

The forum will include a plenary session, chaired by leaders of the Government, the Party Central Committee's Economic Commission and the National Assembly. Some 2,500 private firms will have a chance to voice their opinions and proposals to Party and Government officials.

Six seminars are set to take place, revolving around attracting wealthy tourists to stay for a long time in Vietnam; establishing argo-foretry-fishery chains of high commercial value; and developing the digital economy and new business models; among others.

In addition to the six main sessions, the forum also has a session for women, where the country’s female business leaders share their experiences with the aim of inspiring more women entrepreneurs.

The conclusions drawn at the six sessions, which were running simultaneously this morning, will be summed up at the plenary session in the afternoon. It will be attended by Prime Minister Nguyen Xuan Phuc, Head of the Central Economic Commission Nguyen Van Binh, and other top leaders.

On May 3, there will be networking sessions held to bring together businesses and investors, and an exhibition on Vietnam’s economic achievements.
