The United States government, in partnership with the Government of Vietnam, the US Chamber of Commerce, the Vietnam Chamber of Commerce and Industry, and the US-ASEAN Business Council, will be sponsoring the forum, a statement from the Department of State said.
“Participants attending from the US will join the virtual conference on October 27-28,” it added.
The forum advances a vision for the Indo-Pacific as a free and open region composed of nations that are independent, strong and prosperous.
Government and business leaders from the US, Vietnam and across the Indo-Pacific will discuss energy and infrastructure, the digital economy, market connectivity, health and economic recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic, and US-Indo-Pacific partnerships and commercial opportunities, according to the statement.
“The forum will showcase high-impact private sector investment and government efforts to support market competition, job growth, and high-standard development for greater prosperity in the Indo-Pacific,” it said.
The forum will be conducted via a secure online conferencing platform and there will be optional in-person participation in some events for attendees in Hanoi.
