Vietnam to attend World Economic Forum in Switzerland

A Vietnamese delegation led by Prime Minister Nguyen Xuan Phuc will attend the annual World Economic Forum (WEF) 2017 in Davos, Switzerland from January 17-20.

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 international trade. 

Nearly 3,000 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.
