The conference, co-organised by Keppel Corporation, Temasek Holdings, the Ministry of Planning and Investment of Vietnam (MPI) and the International Enterprise Singapore, promises to be one of the biggest events of its kind in Vietnam.

According to Pham Gia Tuc, Secretary General of the Vietnam Chamber of Commerce and Industry (VCCI), on the first day, August 17, there will be 150 of Vietnam’s biggest corporations and 60 foreign direct-invested enterprises attending the conference.
