Vietnam’s GDP growth is currently higher than that of China, increasing 7.1% year on year and aiming to be 6.6% in 2019.
At 73%, Vietnam’s female labour-participation is among the highest in the world. Women contribute to 40% of the nation’s wealth. Vietnamese women are also avid business pioneers. For every male start-up, there are 1.4 female ones.
Female-headed households in Vietnam are less likely to be poor than male-headed households. Due to Vietnam’s War with so many men being killed during the war, women had to fill the void.
When the Doi Moi reform was launched in 1986, women still comprised the majority of society and continued leading the way to Vietnam’s economic success. The equivalent spirit behind “Rosie the Riveter” during World War II is still very much alive in Vietnam today.
The Vietnam-UK Network via the Vietnam-UK Women in Business Group is hosting a panel discussion and networking event on 2 October 2019 “Vietnam – A Story of Opportunities, Development and Potential”.
The event brings together a broad audience of both male and female professionals from all sectors, including trade, finance, entrepreneurs, start-ups, commerce, technology, media, arts, healthcare, education, governmental agencies, NGOs and think tanks from Vietnam and the UK to:
- Participate in a meaningful discussion about Vietnam – its journey in the past 30 years, where it is today and where it wants to be.
- Celebrate the achievements and contributions of women in society, business and entrepreneurship.
- Allow the audience to learn more about Vietnam – the country, history, culture, people, demographic & social development, opportunities, challenges and potential.
- Bring together senior business leaders and entrepreneurs to promote direct trading and investment opportunities between businesses from the two countries.
*This event is for individuals from registered companies or government organisations, please register with your work email. The right not to accept registrations with personal emails is reserved.
