Dung left Hanoi for Bangkok today at the official invitation of his counterpart from the host nation, Yingluck Shinawatra and WEF Chairman Klaus Schwab.
With the theme of “Shaping the region’s future through connectivity”, this year’s meeting is set to focus on three topics -- the role of fast-growing economies in ASEAN in regaining the balance of global and regional economic prospects, the role of governments and organizations in carrying out effective financial policies to curb inflation and ensure growth sustainability, and the development of growth models that take advantage of population and technology.
The World Economic Forum encourages businesses and governments to commit together to improving the state of the world via meeting key challenges such as building sustained economic growth, mitigating global risks, promoting health, improving social welfare and fostering environmental sustainability.
Over 600 participants from 50 countries convened at the 21st WEF on East Asia 2012 which is held for the first time in Thailand.
