One of the aims of the Asia Economic Cultural Council is to promote multilateral and interdisciplinary cooperation between associations, businesses and institutions.
Located at the eastern edge of mainland Southeast Asia, Vietnam is one of the fastest-growing countries in the world. The capital of the country is Hanoi, while Ho Chi Minh City is the largest city. With a population of over 96 million, it covers an area of 311,700 square kilometres.
A large part of Vietnam's economy is based on state-owned industries like textiles, food, furniture, plastics, paper, tourism, and telecommunications. Agriculture accounts for 15% of GDP and 38% of employment. Vietnam offers various tax incentives to attract and encourage foreign investment into key sectors that are aligned with development goals.
According to the latest IMF forecast, Vietnam's GDP growth in 2023 is expected to reach 4.7 per cent, and forecasted to grow by 5.8 per cent in 2024.
RsA Asia supports this event.
