A high-level Vietnamese delegation led by National Assembly Vice Chairwoman Nguyen Thi Kim Ngan is attending the 5th Vietnam Executive Leadership Programme at Harvard University in Boston, Massachusetts in the US, which began on April 13.

During the week-long event, Vietnamese delegates hold working sessions with professors, experts, jurists and scholars from the University and from other countries, focusing on analysing risks confronting economies in the world and the region in their recovery process.

Vietnamese delegates specified Vietnam’s consistent policies in promoting sustainable and comprehensive growth while highlighting the country’s international integration efforts.

They also informed participants of Vietnam’s positive economic achievements and successes in reforming institutions and fine-turning legal systems to respond to socio-economic challenges, as well as efforts to implement the 2013 Constitution.
Challenges facing Vietnam’s long- and short-term development targets are also on the agenda.

Participants made suggestions for Vietnam to promote its socio-economic development and judicial reform and shared experiences from a number of economies in Northeast and Southeast Asia.

On April 15, Vice Chairwoman Ngan worked with senior judges of the Massachusetts Supreme Judicial Court to learn about the US’s judiciary.

She also met with representatives from the Association of Vietnamese Youth and Students in the US and scholars from the group “Vietnam Initiative” who are working to contribute to Vietnam’s development.

During her time in Boston, Ngan and her entourage also visited the Omni Parker House where the late President Ho Chi Minh worked between 1912-1913.-VNA
