Australia-Vietnam Young Leadership Dialogue (AVYLD) is delighted to host an evening a session on Modern Vietnam: Development over the past 20 years.

Vietnam’s emerging middle class and young demographic has illustrated notable impact on the country’s current economic growth and social development. When Vietnam opened up its market, Australian companies and individuals were its initial supporters. A vibrant Vietnamese community in Australia has also influenced the decision of thousands of Vietnamese students, who choose Australia as their number one English speaking destination for education every year.

With so many synergies, it’s now a great time for Australians and Vietnamese to strengthen linkages and embrace opportunities that will lead to greater understanding, friendship and prosperity for both countries.

Join our pannellists at this event to find out more about Vietnam’s success stories over the last two decades and how Australia contributed to it in the early days and going forward. Find out how you can continue to help and shape Australia’s and Vietnam’s future. 

The event promises to be both inspirational and educational for attendees who wish to further broaden their knowledge and connection to Vietnam.
