The conference, held by the “The Gioi and Viet Nam” (World and Viet Nam) newspaper jointly with the British magazine “The Economist”, will include a round-table conference between senior officials of trans-national groups and the Vietnamese government, a meeting between Vietnamese and foreign entrepreneurs, an exhibition and awarding ceremony to outstanding businesses.
According to Mr. Thuy, the “The Economist” chose to join in the organization of the conference, the first of its kind in Viet Nam, because of the country's remarkable economic achievements in recent years.
