Growth in emerging markets may be slowing, but Vietnam’s economy is going strong. The Economist Intelligence Unit expects Vietnam’s real GDP to grow by 6.8% in 2016, and growth should be even higher in 2017. Vietnam is exposed to global economic headwinds but stands to benefit from new trade agreements and structural shifts in the regional economy, both of which should benefit Vietnam's manufacturing sector.
Hear the prime minister, along with leading voices from government, business and finance, civil society and academia discuss the opportunities and challenges facing Vietnam. Is it smooth sailing ahead?
Speakers: Ian Storey, Tran Truong Thuy, Gael McDonald, Matthew Morell, Eddie Thai, Santitarn Sathirathai, Le Hong Minh, Nguyễn Xuân Phúc, Henry Nguyen Huu Thai Hoa, Peter Ryder
