Strengthening global Vietnamese resources and wisdom for national development
VGP – The Paris-based Association of Vietnamese Scientists and Experts (AVSE Global) held a round-table discussion on March 18 to review its activities in the recent past and introduce coming projects.
Also attending were the Vietnamese Ambassador to France, Dinh Toan Thang, and representatives of significant associations of the Vietnamese community, such as the Vietnamese Association, the Association of Vietnamese Youth and Students, and the Association of Vietnamese Entrepreneurs in France.
Speaking at the meeting, the Ambassador wished AVSE Global members to increase the mobilization of resources and wisdom to contribute to the development and raise the status of Viet Nam.
Over the past time, AVSE Global has connected hundreds of Vietnamese experts and scientists operating in many fields on a global scale with the same desire to contribute to the country.
Additionally, AVSE Global has coordinated with Vietnamese universities and relevant agencies to organize an annual series of seminars and policy forums on the digital economy, public policy management, finance - banking, and renewable energy, to name but a few.
With a focus on innovation in 2023, it will work to connect startup projects with partners and investors. Among them, the Hack4Growth initiative will be pushed ahead to attract startup projects and pave the way for many to be implemented in reality, as seen so far.
The association is also set to hold two major events. More importantly, the second Viet Nam Global Leaders Forum is scheduled to take place in Ho Chi Minh City this June to gather Vietnamese talents from around the globe to discuss issues of the country's concern.
Meanwhile, the Viet Nam sustainable development forum will be held in Phu Tho province after a three-year hiatus caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, focusing on post-pandemic economic recovery, cultural and heritage value promotion, and tourism development, according to him.
Besides, nearly ten workshops on innovation, climate change fight, supply chain, and public policies will be organized in various localities nationwide. AVSE Global will also continue providing development advice to localities, ministries, and sectors while helping them with personnel training.
Addressing the event, the Vietnamese Ambassador to France, Dinh Toan Thang, applauded AVSE Global's projects and said they should be further expanded to contribute to national development./.
