Speaking at the opening ceremony of the event, Chairman of the Binh Duong provincial People’s Committee Vo Van Minh said that this is the fourth time the province has hosted Horasis events, which provides the province with an opportunity to show international partners its socio-economic development achievements, new projects, and orientations to attract investors.
At the meeting, Minister of Science and Technology Huynh Thanh Dat pointed out Vietnam's great achievements after nearly four decades of renewal, which make Vietnam a dynamic and important driver in regional socio-economic development, with GDP increasing more than 100 times. At the same time, it is an ideal destination for foreign investors
Dat emphasised that Vietnam is aiming for three strategic breakthroughs in institutions, infrastructure, and human resources. Strong application of science and technology is identified as the decisive factor in achieving these goals, he said.
The official added that creating favourable conditions for foreign-invested economic sectors is also a top priority of the Government of Vietnam.
