Hanoi (VNA) -
The Nikkei Asian Review Hanoi Forum, taking place in Hanoi today, aims to commemorate and recognise Vietnam and Japan’s strategic investment partnership as the former constantly enhances its global status as a leading economy in the ASEAN region.

The forum is jointly organised by Japan’s NIKKEI Inc. and the Embassy of Japan in Vietnam, with support from the Ministry of Planning and Investment, as an ideal opportunity for Vietnam to showcase its new economic strategy. It will highlight the Nikkei Asian Review’s findings on the country’s progress.

The event features keynote speeches from high ranking Vietnamese government officials and representatives from leading Vietnamese and Japanese companies. They will share their views on concrete strategies for continued development and increased prosperity in the near future with approximately 150 attendants.

Speakers from established financial institutions such as international investment funds, banks, insurance companies and development organisations, including the International Finance Corporation, the World Bank Group, the Japan International Cooperation Agency’s Vietnamese Office and members of the Japan Business Association in Vietnam will also be contributing their insights at the forum.

Since 2013, the Nikkei Asian Review, published by Japan’s NIKKEI Inc., has been bringing pan-Asian perspectives and insights to their wide base of global readers, following 300 must-watch companies across the region, based on market capitalization and growth potential and providing up to date coverage and in depth analysis.
