In his opening remarks, Deputy Prime Minister Vu Duc Dam spoke highly of efforts made by the Ministry of Labour, Invalids and Social Affairs and HCM City to create a helpful “playing ground” for students.

To make Viet Nam a “dragon” of Asia, students should take the lead in doing something new that no one has done, and make new startup ideas.

Sharing the same view, Chairman of the municipal People’s Committee Nguyen Thanh Phong said that startup models and support activities in the city are more diverse in different aspects of the socio-economic life.

Through start-up support policies, HCM City now has a safe, open and effective investment environment with 440,000 enterprises, accounting for 32 percent of the country’s total number.

To carry out a project to support students in starting business until 2025, the city’s high schools, vocational schools, colleges and universities add training programmes on startups.

The city has also organised many workshops on startup and job fairs, and worked to better the startup ecosystem, added Phong.
