Redefining Asia's Challenges and the New Role For Vietnam

19th Asian Corporate Conference
April 22 - 24, 2009, Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam

As the global financial crisis and the new U.S. administration reshape global dynamics, Asia finds itself faced with a new set of challenges. How is the Asia-Pacific region addressing the complexities of the financial crisis and how will Vietnam weather the impact of the current global economic dislocation? How will U.S. policy towards Asia be impacted by the Obama administration? How is the region implementing integrated strategies to achieve collective sustainable growth? How is Vietnam improving its infrastructure—both tangible and in terms of building a better, more technically-trained workforce—and how can other models from Asia serve as examples? With the ambitious goal of being a middle-income developing economy, what economic policies does Vietnam need to implement and how will it sustain positive growth?

At the 19th Asian Corporate Conference, government leaders, key decision-makers and industry experts from the international business community discussed the impact of the global financial crisis on Asian economies and examined the opportunities and challenges in Vietnam's development and its global integration.
