HCM City (VNA) – The Club of Chief Financial Officers (CFO Club) will convene its 48th World Congress in Ho Chi Minh City from November 15-16.

Addressing a press conference on October 18, President of the Vietnam Association of Corporate Directors (VACD) Han Manh Tien said that this is the first time Vietnam has hosted the event, demonstrating the development of the country’s financial sector, as well as the attention paid towards the capital by the business community.

The conference will offer a chance for Vietnamese CFOs and senior finance personnel to meet 120 renowned experts and speakers in the financial sector to learn about trends and requirements to change financial management in the digital era.

Tien said the congress, including five discussion sessions, will focus on the economic prospects of Vietnam and Asia, as well as the role of financial technology (Fintech) for the financial sector in the future.

In Vietnam, most small- and medium-sized enterprises have a weak financial administration system, which hampers them during the integration process.–VNA
