Overseas Vietnamese intellectuals and experts gathered at a forum in Hanoi on June 7, contributing their opinions to the country’s economic development and integration orientations during 2016-2020.
Themed “Improving Vietnam’s competitiveness in the global economy”, the forum was co-organised by the Party Central Committee’s Economic Commission, the State Committee for Overseas Vietnamese Affairs, and the Foreign Ministry.
Speaking at the event, Vice State President Nguyen Thi Doan said that Vietnam has gained countless achievements in all fields as a result of the nearly 30-year renewal (Doi Moi) process, but various weaknesses have also revealed themselves, which affected the country’s competitiveness in the international arena.
Weaknesses must be removed or strengthened to ensure the country’s development on the right track and successful integration, she said, whilst praising the move to hear the opinions of overseas Vietnamese intellectuals, many of whom are working for prestigious universities, research institutes, transnational economic groups and international organisations.
Their knowledge, experience and skills have contributed to the country’s fast and sustainable growth, she said, adding that the Party and State always appreciate these valuable contributions.
At the forum, overseas Vietnamese intellectuals joined their domestic colleagues and policy makers in discussing the growth model reform, economic restructuring, human resources training and science and technology application in order to raise Vietnam’s competitiveness.
They also shared other countries’ experience in industrialisation and modernisation.
They proposed annual or more frequent organisation of a Business Forum for both domestic and overseas intellectuals, experts and scientists.

the Party and State have issued many policies that offer favorable conditions to overseas Vietnamese, so ,more OV have come back Vietnam for travelling or investing
