NDO/VNA – The University of Applied Sciences and Arts Northwestern Switzerland (FHNW) is organising its series of annual seminars on ASEAN, highlighting technology, innovation, and entrepreneurship in three member states – Vietnam, Singapore, and Indonesia.

The event, which is taking place from February 19-23, has attracted the participation of FHNW students, lecturers, and representatives from institutions and businesses in Northwestern Switzerland.

As a speaker on Vietnam’s economy and business climate, Counsellor at the Vietnamese Embassy in Switzerland Ngo Minh Nguyet introduced the country’s fast-growing economy, intensive global integration, and outstanding achievements made in economic and external affairs last year.

She talked about the startup and innovation movements in Vietnam, as well as the Government’s policies to support and encourage the development of a start-up ecosystem, considering the development of technology and innovation as one of the major catalysts for the country’s economic growth and prosperity.

The seminars are part of the university’s project to explore ASEAN. The project was launched three years ago with an aim to boost students’ knowledge of the economy, further enhancing economic ties between the European country and the bloc. It has organised several field trips to ASEAN member countries for its students, lecturers, and business partners.
