Deputy-Minister Son, head of the committee, stressed that the forum is one of the most important foreign relations activities of Vietnam in 2018, which aims to further enhance the nation’s position and prestige in the world.

He requested sub-committees and members of the organizing committee to proactively work together to appropriately mobilize what is needed for the event and prepare for a working session with a WEF delegation in late June 2018.

The event’s activities include 55 sessions discussing opportunities, benefits and issues of the fourth industrial revolution (Industry 4.0) for the ASEAN members and measures to promote start-up development as well as ASEAN’s own dynamism and competitiveness./.
