The Culture & Business Forum is set to take place in both in-person and virtual forms on December 5 with a view to connecting domestic and foreign business communities.

The national forum in Hanoi will be attended by Party and State leaders who will come to join enterprises, managers, and researchers to discuss business culture and affirm the importance of culture to sustainably developing the economy and facilitating the business environment, Ho Anh Tuan, Chairman of the Vietnam Association of Business Culture Development, told a recent press conference.

It will also be an occasion for enterprises to submit proposals on ways to tackle difficulties and recover and develop the economy, especially amid the COVID-19 pandemic, he added.
