Viet Nam to hold two regional countries’ meetings

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.
