The Institute of Economics of Ho Chi Minh National Academy of Politics organized a scientific workshop entitled "Finalizing economic constitutions to support innovation, creativity, and developing entrepreneurial systems, and enhancing national competitiveness" on March 28, 2017.

Assoc. Prof. Dr. Nguyen Quoc Thai, Deputy Director of the Institute of Economics gave an introductory speech affirming that innovation, creativity, developing entrepreneurial ecosystems, and enhancing national competitiveness are Vietnam’s heated issues. Vietnam's start-up movement has taken shape at the national level and has attracted many domestic and foreign resources; it has been contributing to creating a new growth motivation for the economy and enhancing national competitiveness. In that process, the government plays the role of a "constructor" who sets up  policies,  mechanism,  legal corridor, and assists with access to capital ... so that innovation, creativity, developing entrepreneurial systems really turn into the driving force and the decisive factor for enhancing national competitiveness.

                                                            Overview of the workshop

Recognizing the role of economic constitutions to support innovation, creativity, development of entrepreneurial systems, and enhancing national competitiveness, the Government and the National Assembly of Vietnam have issued a variety of important policies to create a comprehensive institutional system. Government’s efforts in recent years have brought about positive milestones, but the results are still limited. Therefore, this conference is aimed at establishing a forum to discuss different perspectives on the improvement of economic constitutions. It will afterwards meet the requirements of national socio-economic development currently and in the coming years.

Presentations at the workshop covered eight themes related to the improvement of economic constitutions in support of innovation, creativity, development of entrepreneurial systems, and enhancing national competitiveness, including finalizing constitutions on (i) finance; (ii) intellectual property; (iii) public service delivery and organization; (iv) labor market; (v) science and technology market; (vi) investment; (vii) encouraging the formation of donor community; (viii) involvement of start-up businesses in the provision of technological solutions to government agencies.
