Themed “Reinforcing the Macroeconomic Foundation, Promoting Sustainable Recovery and Development,” the forum will be organized by the National Assembly’s Economic Committee, the Ho Chi Minh National Academy of Politics, the Communist Party of Vietnam’s Central Economic Commission, and the Vietnam Academy of Social Sciences.

Vietnam Socio-Economic Forum 2022 will be held on September 18.

It follows the success of the Vietnam Economic Forum that took place last December.

This year’s event will see the presence of Party and State leaders and around 400 delegates, including foreign scientists and specialists through a video teleconference.

Nguyen Manh Hung, Standing Member of the N.A. Economic Committee, said 2022 is an important year for the implementation of the socio-economic recovery and development program and the socio-economic development plan from 2021 – 2025.

He anticipated that multiple challenges caused by rising prices, transport and logistics costs, potential disruptions of supply from China, Russia-Ukraine crisis will have tremendous impacts on people’s lives, particularly the poor and low-income earners, and reduce enterprises’ resilience and put a brake on their recovery.

The forum will provide a comprehensive review of Vietnam’s economy in the first nine months of 2022 and outlook for the entire year; discuss pressing domestic and international socio-economic problems and institutional issues in the new context; and identify potential inflationary, financial, fiscal and monetary risks as well as proper solutions and policies to address issues in the fields of science-technology, education, labor, health care and social welfare.

It will comprise two seminar sessions - one on accelerating institutional reforms and improving policies on land management as a major solution for socio-economic recovery and development; and the other on foster the implementation of supportive policies for enterprises and laborers to leverage business and production recovery and sustainable development.
