Deloitte Southeast Asia participates in Vietnam's largest consulting management forum
More than 400 participants including government officials, academics as well as current and aspiring business leaders attended the Vietnam Consulting Management Forum 2013 held in Ho Chi Minh City on 31 May.
Vietnam’s economy has grown rapidly since the country opened its economy in the 1980s, and today foreign investors consistently rank it as one of the most attractive investment destinations in Asia. However, the Vietnamese economy faces complex challenges to sustain its growth in this era of globalisation.
Frank Valenta, Consulting Partner was invited to sit on one of the panel discussions at the forum. During the panel discussion, he spoke about the role consultants can play in resolving the challenges faced by Vietnamese manufacturing companies. Specifically, he suggested that consultants could enable local companies to leapfrog international competitors by implementing global best practices.
The other speakers of the event included:
- Prof. Dr. Vu Dinh Thanh, Rector of Ho Chi Minh City University of Technology, who opened the forum.
- Dr. Le Dang Doanh, Senior Economic Expert and Former advisor for Vietnam’s Minister of Planning and Investment, who presented an overview of the economic and market trends for Vietnam in 2013.
- Mr. Vo Quoc Thang, Chairman of Dong Tam Corporation and Kien Long Bank, who was the keynote speaker. He shared with the delegates his organisation’s experience in overcoming the economic crisis and the challenges CEOs are expected to face in today’s economic conditions.
“One of our objectives was to raise Deloitte’s profile in the consulting field and attract job applicants in a market where we have struggled to recruit qualified staff. Judging from the response received from participants during and after the forum, our participation at the event was a success,” said Frank.
