During the trip, PM Chinh is scheduled to chair, attend, and deliver remarks at several events of the WEF Annual Meeting 2024, including a seminar on investment attraction in the semiconductor industry, the WEF Country Strategic Dialogue on Vietnam, a policy dialogue, a seminar on promoting new growth drivers in the country, and a discussion on promoting the role of global cooperation in the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN).
