Speaking at the workshop, vice chairman of the institute Ngueyn Van Vinh said the development strategy was expected to draw attention, identify and mobilize resources to facilitate business, increase the strength of the private sector and address problems.

He said he hoped the business circle, occupational associations, universities and Vietnam’s development partners would work together to develop key strategic points for the development of non-State enterprises and the private sector in 2021-2030.

Caitlin Wiesen, UNDP Resident Representative in Vietnam, told the workshop that it was very important to harmonize economic growth with sustainable development and environmental protection.

Economic achievements must go in line with ensuring social welfare and benefits for people, she said.

She said that policymakers should focus on studying, analyzing and finding solutions for challenges during the country’s development.

Enterprises should be placed at the center of policies to create favorable conditions for them, she said, adding that support for start-ups should focus on innovation.

Economic expert Nguyen Dinh Cung said sustainable development must rely on scientific and technological innovations and digital transformation.

It’s a must to change ways of thinking and actions, he said, adding that now was time to catch the opportunities of the Fourth Industrial Revolution and international integration to increase productivity, labor quality and national competitiveness, he said.
