The 2018 Horasis Asia Meeting, Asia’s premier gathering of the region’s most senior leaders in business and administration, opened in the southern province of Binh Duong in November 26.

The annual meeting is described as an ideal platform to explore and advance regional cooperation, impact investing, and sustainable growth.

In his opening remarks, Deputy Prime Minister Trinh Dinh Dung highlighted Vietnam’s economic achievements over the past three decades of reforms since 1986, saying the country is viewed by the international community as a model of a successful transition economy.

He emphasised that the Government of Vietnam has been consistent towards the goals of stablising the macro-economy, ensuring national financial and monetary security, improving business climate and removing barriers for enterprises.

The Government has also strived to enhance its transparency and accountability as it regards satisfying firms and people as a measure of efficiency in governmental management.

A range of activities will be held during the two-day event, with four plenary sessions and 36 dialogues./.
