You are cordially invited to attend the Vietnam Sustainability Forum VSF-2019, “Fostering Economic Growth and Inclusive Society for Sustainable Development”, which will be held in Hanoi (Vietnam) on 17-18 January 2019.
The VSF aims at providing an international exchange platform for global leaders and stakeholders (policymakers, academics, businesses, entrepreneurs, and NGOs) to present and discuss worldwide initiatives, practices and visionary trends about sustainability. The ultimate goal is to achieve the long-lasting development of an inclusive and equitable society whereby prosperous growth goes together with sustainable environment.
Following the success of the first edition (20+ international distinguished speakers and policy leaders, 400+ attendees), the VSF-2019 will devote special workshops for discussing the pathways and the implementation of Vietnam’s sustainability policies as well as put emphasis on the exchange of experiences and the policy coordination at international level.
