VGP - The midterm Viet Nam Business Forum (VBF) 2017 was kicked off in Ha Noi on July 4, seeing the presence of Government and ministries officials, and representatives from international organizations, trade associations and businesses.

The forum, themed “Linkage between domestic and FDI businesses – Partnership for mutual benefit”, offered a venue for foreign direct investment (FDI) and local enterprises to get connected, contributing to sustainable development and improving the quality of the national economy.

The event featured three sessions, focusing on value chain, response to technological challenges, and financial resources for sustainable development. 

In addition, the 10 other FTAs that Viet Nam has signed have opened up more doors for Vietnamese goods to many important markets and stimulated its efforts to improve economic institutions and build a sustainable, stable and attractive business environment in the eyes of domestic and foreign investors. 

The event was jointly held by the Ministry of Planning and Investment, the World Bank, the International Finance Corporation, and management board of the VBF Alliance.
