The government is set to hold the conference on 30 years of FDI attraction in Vietnam. What are the main topics on the agenda? The event aims to review and assess the contributions of FDI to the Vietnamese economy over the past 30 years. Making a clear assessment is very important, because these 30 years of FDI are closely linked to the country’s reforms and international economic integration – and a clear view is essential for the attraction of further investment capital. Such an assessment would also affirm the policy of the Party and the government on economic reforms, international integration, and FDI attraction. Overall, I believe the policy has been very timely, correct, and extremely important, as it has created a turning point for the economy and the national development. However, in addition to achievements, there have been some limitations to FDI which lead to concerns. Thus, we also have to look at the inefficiencies in FDI attraction, to discover the … [Read more...] about Forging future strategies based on 30 years of FDI
