A May 2-3 forum, which the PM is expected to attend, will review policies and seek solutions for private sector development.

The government needs realistic feedback on some of the supportive policies it has issued recently for the private sector, Nguyen Huu Nghia, Deputy Head of the Party Central Committee’s Economic Commission, said at a press conference Friday.

He said he expected the Vietnam Private Sector Forum, gathering 2,000 to 2,500 enterprises, would see an honest airing of opinions. "That will help the government and management agencies identify barriers facing the private sector, and seek ways to enhance its role as an importing driving force of the economy."

The forum is hosted by the Government and the Party Central Committee’s Economic Commission, and co-organized by the Private Sector Development Committee (Committee IV), VnExpress and the IEC Group.

The forum has three major aims: assessing Resolution 10 impacts on private sector development after two-year implementation; recording achievements; and creating opportunities for the private sector to make proposals to improve mechanisms and policies.

Both domestic and foreign firms, big, small and medium, will have the opportunity to connect and exchange experiences at the forum, organizers said.

On the morning of May 2, six seminars and talks will address several topics including tourism; digital economy; the Comprehensive and Progressive Agreement for Trans-Pacific Partnership (CPTPP); medium and long term capital; fishery, forestry and agriculture value chains; and startups.

Of these a seminar on female entrepreneurs with theme "For a Prosperous Vietnam" will gather top Vietnamese businesswomen who will share their experiences and inspire the Vietnamese business community.

At the Plenary Session in the afternoon of the same day, proposals gathered from 500 outstanding private enterprises will be read out in front of Prime Minister Nguyen Xuan Phuc, Head of the Party Central Committee’s Economic Commission Nguyen Van Binh and representatives of management agencies.

On May 3, a series of activities will be held for businesses and investors to connect with each other. An exhibition area showcasing private sector achievements is expected to attract 3,000 guests.
