Minister of Planning and Investment Nguyen Chi Dung will open Vietnam M&A Forum 2017 this afternoon in Ho Chi Minh City.

Minister Nguyen Chi Dung will give the opening speech at Vietnam M&A Forum 2017 today

The forum is scheduled to take place at 1.30 PM today at GEM Centre, District 1, Ho Chi Minh City. Minister Nguyen Chi Dung will be joined by 20 speakers and 400 senior leaders of government agencies, investment funds, and leading corporations from Vietnam and overseas.

Co-organised annually by VIR and AVM Vietnam, Vietnam M&A Forum is a major event for the mergers and acquisitions (M&A) market in Vietnam. Throughout the past nine years, the forum has been a platform for investors, corporations, policymakers, and other industry experts to meet and discuss opportunities in the booming market.

The theme of this year’s edition is Seeking a big push, as new challenges in 2017 may prevent the Vietnamese M&A market from reaching the $5-billion mark in deal value. A strong initiative is necessary to boost the quantity and quality of M&A deals.

At the event this afternoon, speakers and representatives from various sectors will discuss the most pressing issues of M&A in three panels: Identifying breakthrough sectors; Opportunities for foreign investors; and Lessons drawn from previous deals.

All participants at the forum get a copy of the Vietnam M&A Outlook 2017 special publication, which provides quality coverage of the year’s deal trends.

In the evening, the most outstanding transactions of 2016 will be honoured in the Deal Awards Ceremony and the Gala Dinner.

Following the events, a two-day master class on M&A strategy will be held at Pullman Hotel by Professor Nigel Denscombe, chairman of Denscombe Corporation.
