NDO – More than 200 entrepreneurs from across the country participated in a cultural exchange in Hanoi, on October 11, which was held by the National Assembly’s Economic Committee and the Institute of Training and Economic Development (ITED) on the occasion of the Vietnam Entrepreneurs Day (October 13).
During the event, themed “For a stable and prosperous finance-economy”, delegates and economic experts focused their discussions on a number of issues and put forward challenges and solutions to Vietnamese businessmen and industrialists in the current period of integration, industrialisation and modernisation, and in anticipation of the strong waves of the fourth Industrial Revolution throughout the world.
In his speech, NA Vice Chairman Phung Quoc Hien praised the participating entrepreneurs and spoke highly of the NA’s Economic Committee and the ITED’s initiative to organise such a meaningful programme, which helps to encourage businesspersons and industrialists around the country to exert increased efforts and seize any opportunities for economic development, with the motto “Convergence – Enrichment - National Construction”.
He called on the entrepreneurs to increase their investment in training highly skilled human resources in order to meet the requirements of the current situation; to accelerate the application of science and technology in production and business; to strengthen the competitiveness of products and brand building; to ensure the rights and health of consumers; to protect the environment; and to make meaningful contributions to social security activities.
Interwoven into the exchange programme were several pieces of musical performances praising and honouring Vietnamese businesspeople, who are the pioneering soldiers in implementing the Party’s Doi Moi (Renewal) policy and are an important force in the country’s economic development cause.
Under the framework of the programme, the organising committee presented a number of outstanding entrepreneurs with symbolic models of Vietnam’s national emblem. Delegates also offered incense to President Ho Chi Minh at the K9-Da Chong Historical Relic Site in Hanoi’s Son Tay town.
