PM to attend WEF on East Asia 2012 in Thailand

Prime Minister Nguyen Tan Dung will attend the World Economic Forum on East Asia 2012 in Thailand, at the invitation of his Thai counterpart Yingluck Shinawatra and WEF President Klaus Schwab, according to the Foreign Ministry.

WEF on East Asia 2012 themed “Shaping the Region’s Future through Connectivity” is scheduled to take place in Bangkok from May 30-June 1.

This year’s meeting will put ASEAN at the heart of the agenda. This will be an exceptional opportunity not only for leaders from the ASEAN region, but also for those who see in the ASEAN countries a major evolving geopolitical and geo-economic pillar of the global economy.

At the meeting, senior-decision makers will discuss:

•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?
