Mr. Vu Tien Loc, Chairman of the Vietnam Chamber of Commerce and Industry (VCCI), told the “Women and the Green Economy” conference on March 5 in Hanoi that Vietnamese women will be the leaders in the green revolution.

He also highlighted the role and determination of woman in modern society.

The conference was held to promote the role of women entrepreneurs in the creation of a clean production platform, to ensure the health of consumers and improve living standards.

It was a chance for women entrepreneurs to discuss and share their experience, especially in applying technology in manufacturing.

“International women and Vietnamese women contribute significantly to socioeconomic development,” said Ms. Dang Thi Ngoc Thinh, Member of the Party Central Committee and Vice President. “Vietnam will be a pioneer in the implementation of social responsibility and contribute to building a green economy.”

“Women entrepreneurs cannot compete with the scale of enterprises run by men but they can compete successfully in green business,” Ms. Nguyen Thi Tuyet Minh, Chairman of the Vietnam Women Entrepreneurs Council (VWEC), told the forum.

Ms. Thai Huong, Chairman of the TH Group, a partner of this year’s conference, who has persistently pursued the dream of green agriculture, said she applies high technology in agriculture together with advanced international scientific governance and Vietnamese methods to produce safe and organic food.

“The core value is human health, for Mother Earth and nature,” she said.

In conclusion, Ms. Minh pointed out that Vietnamese women cannot boost their business activities without government support. “It is necessary to have reasonable policies to resolve the challenges and difficulties,” she said. “The cooperation of male entrepreneurs in supply chains and value chains and support from communications agencies would contribute greatly to the development of Vietnamese women entrepreneurs.”

Other activities included booths displaying products introduced by female entrepreneurs and a Gala Dinner to create opportunities for women entrepreneurs to connect and promote their products and brands.

It was also opportunity for Vietnamese women entrepreneurs to show their talent and creativity in recognition of Women’s Day, March 8.
