ABOUT EVENT / Overview
Vietnam set itself the target of becoming an industrialized country by 2020 and plans to invest US$400 billion in infrastructure, half of which will be privately funded. Vietnam’s 2011 – 2020 Socio-Economic Development Strategy (SEDS) sets the basis for infrastructure development and economic growth in the country.
As of mid-2016, there were 68 BOT projects formulated under the management of the Ministry of Transportation (MOT) in the road, highway, airport, canal and railway sectors. The up-coming project pipeline amounts to US$176 billion, with rail projects dominating the portfolio, followed by the power sector and the process industries.
An average annual growth rate of 5.4% and reduction in poverty rates from 60% to 20% of the population clearly indicate that Vietnam is well on the path to achieving Middle Income Country status (WB, 2013).

It would provide a glimpse into the industry from global and local perspective and would be a platform to be used for networking and knowledge sharing perspective and broaden your reach in the industry.
