Viet Nam will host two regional development conferences next month in Ha Noi, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs announced yesterday.
The third Ayeyawady – Chao Phraya – Mekong Economic Cooperation Strategy (ACMECS) -- named after rivers in Myanmar, Thailand, Cambodia, Laos, and Viet Nam -- will be held on November 7.
More than 400 firms from these countries and investors from Japan, Korea, the EU, and the US will attend a business forum.
ACMECS, founded in 2003, seeks to utilize member-countries’ diverse strengths and promote balanced development in the sub-region. Viet Nam joined it in 2004.
The fourth Cambodia – Lao PDR – Myanmar – Viet Nam (CLMV) summit conference will be held the previous day.
The annual summit focuses on economics, investment, agriculture, industry, energy, transportation, IT, tourism, and human resources development.
