The Vietnam Global Investment Forum will be held in Hanoi on September 9, according to Euromoney.

Supported by the Ministry of Planning and Investment, the forum will be attended by more than 600 delegates representing government officials, business leaders, foreign direct investors, fund managers, industry experts, economists and bankers.

The forum will discuss Vietnam's economic recovery and outlook for 2016; TPP, FTAs and ASEAN integration; Vietnam's leadership transition in 2016; banking sector reform and non-performing loans (NPLs); and how tensions with China affect Vietnam's growth.

Participants will also discuss infrastructure and energy development; state-owned enterprise (SOE) equitisation; foreign ownership limits and strategic investments; real estate; agriculture; consumption opportunities; and foreign direct investment (FDI) trends.

Vietnam is quickly becoming one of the fastest growing economies in Asia, said Euromoney, with economic growth of 6.28 percent in the first half of 2015.

Foreign direct investments have poured into Vietnam in preparation for several trade deals, such as the Trans-Pacific-Partnership (TPP), thanks to the Government's openness to diversifying its economy and integrating with the world.-VNA
