Themed “Responsive and Responsible Leadership”, the event will feature more than
300 sessions on improving global governance, coping with insecurity and crises,
promoting inclusive and sustainable growth amid global economic slowdown,
economic restructuring and social reform.
Participants will also discuss WEF’s initiatives in the fields of consumption,
digital economy and society, natural resources and environment,
finance-monetary, food security and agriculture, health care, investment and
delegates are expected to join the event, including leaders from China, Germany,
Japan, the Netherland; representatives from the US President-elect Donald
Trump’s power transition team, United Nations Secretary General and executives
from the World Bank, the International Monetary Fund and prestigious scholars.
Since Vietnam and
WEF established ties in 1989, senior Vietnamese leaders have frequently attended
the WEF’s annual meetings in Davos and East Asia. Both sides are working closely
together in agriculture.
Currently, 11 Vietnamese corporations and groups are WEF’s members, including
the military-run telecoms provider Viettel, FPT Group and VinGroup.
