In particular, the Ho Chi Minh City Stock Exchange provided a detailed overview of how the Vietnamese capital market has grown and what the next steps in its development will be, while VinaCapital discussed Vietnam’s macroeconomic landscape and where the fund sees opportunities in the market.

Investors at the Corporate Day event noted that the Vietnamese stock market has become an attractive destination for global funds thanks to solid progress in the equitisation programme of state-owned enterprises and the government’s openness to foreign investment.

More direct discussions between companies and investors were arranged during the last part of the event.
