5. 4. 16 in HCMC and 7. 4. 16 in Hanoi

The new Platform for the Private Sector in Vietnam to susessfully contribute to the Agenda 2030 initated by VCCI, UNIDO and Global Compact Network Vietnam

In September 2015 Leaders of 193 United Nations member states have adopted the Agenda 2030 summarized in the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) which address the challenges of economic development, social inclusion, environmental sustainability, and good governance.

Our April Business- Edition of the CSR Calendar Forum is intended to be the starting point to mainstream the opportunities and the responsibilities the SDGs are bearing for the private sector in Vietnam based on the two localized global initiatives UN Global Compact Network Vietnam (GCNV) and Vietnam Business Council for Sustainable Development (VBCSD) which will support entrepreneurs to start their global journey on the national level.

  • What can the SDG mean for entrepreneurs?
  • What is the scope?
  • Who can support me?
  • and finally: What is in for me?

Based on the long years of partnership VCCI-SDforB and UNIDO are the initiators of this new, open platform for Vietnam's inspired, creative and successful entrepreneurs. We are convinced that this community will now grow and contribute to the SDG through innovation and partnerships.

Nobody is to small to join! - So don't miss this inspiring workshop.

We are proud to present Mdm. Pham Chi Lan as our keynote speaker who will link the SDGs with the most recent research and findings on Vietnam, the Vision Vietnam 2035 report.
