GREEN-BIZ 2009 will be Vietnamâ€™s premier event showcasing European solutions to Vietnamâ€™s development challenges with particular focus on the energy, water, transport and construction sectors. The event will have both a conference and an exhibition part, and is being shaped with a comprehensive and unique structure bringing together the key figures from the European and Vietnamese business communities, government, academia, consultancies and financing institutions to present possible options and develop common solutions for Vietnam. The event will provide the different stakeholders with the ability to discuss partnering, business deals, licensing and funding needs, with a view to meeting Vietnamâ€™s demands both today and tomorrow while paving the way for a sustainable future.
In order to assure that the event is suited to Vietnamese needs and to guarantee an exceptional representation of key decision makers from both government and business, we will work closely with our Vietnamese partners including the Vietnam Chamber of Commerce and Industry (VCCI), the Ministry of Natural Resources and the Environment (MONROE), the Ministry of Industry and Trade (MOIT), the Ministry of Construction,, the Ministry of Science and Technology, the Ministry of Planning and Investment (MPI), the Ministry of Finance (MOF), the State Pricing Committee (energy prices) and the Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MOFA).
The Conference part of the event will offer a platform for leading figures from both the public and private sectors to discuss Vietnamâ€™s current infrastructure challenges and feasible opportunities for cleaner solutions. The program is designed to comprehensively address the specific challenges in key infrastructure sectors, including crucial issues such as financing, and to present the real economic opportunities arising from green business practices.
Sessions will be held in a roundtable format to enable direct interaction between policy makers and key industry representatives, and to provide participants with ample opportunities to ask questions and participate in the debate. Each roundtable will be comprised of a Vietnamese government representative at vice-minister level or higher, a chairman, and European and Vietnamese experts from industry and academia.
