American singer Katy Perry will arrive in Ho Chi Minh City to attend the Under 30 Summit being held by Forbes Vietnam on May 12.
According to the organisers, the Hot ‘n' Cold singer will participate in the event as a UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador and former member of the Under 30 list, which has 30 outstanding young people under the age of 30 from various fields, released by Forbes Vietnam last February.
Katy will deliver a speech, encouraging Vietnamese youth to pursue their future plans and raise their voices in issues that they believe to be the most important in their life.
Besides Katy, the other speakers at the summit will include former Vietnamese Ambassador to Europe Ton Nu Thi Ninh, founder of FPT Group Truong Gia Binh, founder and Chairman of VNG Group Le Hong Minh, and Managing Director of 500 Startups Khailee, besides CEO of SeeSpace Inc Do Hoai Nam and CEO of HSBC Vietnam Pham Hong Hai.
Being held under the theme "The Next Generation", the Under 30 Summit focuses on the young generation, especially those who were born after the 70s and 80s.
The event includes keynote speeches, on-stage interviews and discussions on the identity of the young generation, their opportunities, challenges and dreams as well as their leadership visions.
Perry was appointed a UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador in 2013. The 31-year-old singer's main role is to help raise the voices of youth and children worldwide.
Before arriving in Vietnam, Katy will attend organised tours in Asia, including in Singapore, Thailand, Japan and Chinese Taiwan.
