The second Indonesia-Vietnam Trade Tourism and Investment Forum will begin on June 13 in Ho Chi Minh City, aiming at creating joint opportunities on trade, investment and tourism for both sides.
The two-day event is organised by the Indonesian Consulate General in HCM City and the Vietnam Chamber of Commerce and Industry.
Themed “Indonesia – Vietnam: Partnership for Prosperity”, the forum is expected to bring together 250 companies from both countries. High-ranking dignitaries from the two countries will also attend.
This year’s forum will include a panel discussion, a break-out session about trade, investment and tourism, one-on-one business meeting and an Indonesian product exhibition.
Among the topics will be the implementation of a Plan of Action, particularly the targeted bilateral trade volume of 5 billion USD by 2015.
An evening Gala Dinner and a charity dinner will present Indonesian artists performing traditional dances and folk songs. Also included will be a heritage batik fashion show, a contemporary band and an Angklung orchestra.
Ticket proceeds from the charity dinner will be donated to vulnerable groups of society.
The first event was held last year in Hanoi.
