HCMC - The Government's Private Economic Development Research Board and VnExpress news website will jointly organize the Vietnam Economic Forum (ViEF) on March 19 and 20, which includes the largest dialogue ever between the Government and the private sector, with some 3,000-5,000 participants, VnExpress reported.

Participants in the forum will be representatives of the Government, private enterprises, business associations and domestic and foreign experts.

At the forum, representatives of the private sector will present their difficulties and propose coping solutions, especially policy recommendations.

Specifically, in the finance and banking sector, solutions to successfully set up voluntary pension funds and to develop digital banking services in Vietnam will be discussed.

Further, opportunities and challenges ushered in by the Comprehensive and Progressive Agreement for Trans-Pacific Partnership (CPTPP), especially in the textile and garment sector, will be put on the table for discussion.

As for tourism, the two sides will discuss roadmaps to improve visa policies, aeronautic infrastructure and the management of tourist sites.

At a discussion on the digital economy, experts will propose ways to promote noncash payments and to benefit from the Fourth Industrial Revolution as a whole.

In addition, the representatives of enterprises will present solutions to manage the redundancy of farm produce and improve the quality of these products. The establishment of supply chains in the agriculture sector will also be mentioned.

Leading experts will discuss the sharing economy model of ride-hailing firm Grab and short-term letting firm Airbnb.

Thus, the forum is a good opportunity for State management agencies to become aware of obstacles hindering private enterprises’ operations and to issue preferential policies that support these firms.
