Hanoi (VNA) – Deputy Prime Minister and Foreign Minister Pham Binh Minh is leading a Vietnamese delegation to the 2016 Boao Forum for Asia (BFA) in Boao city, China’s Hainan province.

The forum, themed “Asia’s New Future: New Dynamics, New Vision”, is expected to voice hot issues related to artificial intelligence and “Internet Plus”. High on its agenda is China’s 13th Five Year Plan for the 2016-2020 period and the country’s pursuit of supply-side reform.

As innovation and startups have heated up the economy, leading start-ups in traditional and emerging areas will share their experience at ten dialogues to be held in the framework of the forum.

A sports industry sub-forum is scheduled for the first time at the BFA, alongside 15 roundtables among business leaders and their bilateral dialogues.

The BFA is a non-governmental and non-profit international organisation with a fixed conference date and fixed domicile. The forum has won great support from Asian countries and drawn extensive attention from the whole world.

The purpose of the BFA is to promote economic exchange, coordination and cooperation within Asia and between Asia and other parts of the world. It also aims to offer a high-end dialog platform for governments, enterprises, experts and scholars to jointly discuss economic, societal, environmental and other issues.

Through its working network with the political, business and academic circles, the BFA will serve the ever-growing economic ties among its members and between its members and other entities.-VNA
