PM heads to Thailand for WEF on East Asia

PM Nguyen Tan Dung has led a Vietnamese delegation to attend the World Economic Forum (WEF) on East Asia 2012 in Bangkok, Thailand.

The attendance is made at the invitation of Thail PM Yingluck Sinawatra and WEF President Klaus Schwab.

The forum takes place in the context that the global economy has shown signs of recovery and promising growth against the end of 2011. The East Asia maintained a relatively high growth rate of 8% in 2011 and is forecast to expand at around 7.4% in 2012.

Under the motto “Shaping the Region’s Future through Connectivity”, the forum, scheduled from May 30-June 1, will focus on three topics, including:

•How can the high economic growth economies of ASEAN help to rebalance both the global and the regional overall economic outlook?

•How will governments and institutions develop the financial policies to manage inflation, capital outflows, commodity price volatility and balanced growth towards greater domestic and regional demand?

•How will the region leverage its demographic dividend and technology base to develop the models to increase growth through innovation, improve talent mobility, entrepreneurship and skill building?

Via the attendance, PM Nguyen Tan Dung hopes to raise the role and status of Vietnam in the region and boost linkages between Vietnam and the WEF.

Earlier, Vietnam was the host of 2010 WEF on East Asia./.
