Today, Viet Nam is at a critical and exciting crossroads as it seeks to expand its cultural image, elevate its cultural production, innovate its industries, strengthen institutions, and widen its reach into global markets. Viet Nam's meteoric economic rise since 1986 has enabled the country and its people to increase living standards, reduce poverty, and achieve lower middle-income status. Looking ahead, there will be new challenges, and great opportunities facing Viet Nam with questions such as what cultural, economic, educational, scientific, and technological direction(s) will Viet Nam take to garner realistic sustainable growth? The possible outcomes are of vital interest to many domestically, regionally, and other international stakeholders. 

The "From Possibilities to Vision and Action: Preparing Viet Nam for Its Next Phase of Growth" conference brings together academics, industry experts, government officials, leading cultural producers, and youth to discuss Viet Nam's development question. The two-day conference will feature speakers from diverse industries and institutions, breakout sessions for continued debates, and working groups with action plans – all to facilitiate deep dialogue and to accelerate achieving a prosperous Viet Nam driven by sustainable and inclusive economic advancement.
