The European Chamber of Commerce in Vietnam (EuroCham) on May 23 launched Green-Biz 2013 at a seminar themed Energy Savings and Sustainable Profits.

Green-Biz is an integrated two-day Business-to-Business and Business-to-Government event, to be held in Hanoi from September 19-20. It will include a conference with an international exhibition and networking events, presenting the most pressing issues for sustainable development in Vietnam.

In the months leading up to the main event, a Green Empowering contest, a Green Building programme and a Clean Business seminar will be held to introduce various European green business solutions for Vietnam.

Preben Hjortlund, EuroCham’s Chairman, said that in 2013, EuroCham will focus on implementing the third version of Green-Biz, facing up to challenges and mobilising resources to develop a “green future”.

This year’s event will attract key European and Vietnamese participants from academia, public bodies, civil society, international organisations, press and private companies . Green-Biz 2013 is the third event of its type organised in Vietnam after Green-Biz 2009 and 2011.-VNA
