Speaking at the opening ceremony, Deputy Prime Minister Vu Duc Dam emphasized: “I am very pleased to attend and speak at the Horasis India Meeting 2022 with the theme of "Dynamic Vietnam - New Vision". On behalf of the Vietnamese Government, he sent respectful greetings to delegates attending the meeting.

Emphasizing the world’s economic situation after the Covid-19 pandemic, Deputy Prime Minister Vu Duc Dam said that the world is going through great and complicated changes. Some pessimistic thoughts about the future have appeared somewhere, but above all, this is an opportunity for us to meditate on new ways, creating new values. Heightening resilience and innovation, enhancing sustainability has become an inevitable goal and need.

After nearly 4 decades of renewal, Vietnam has achieved great achievements with historical significance. The size of GDP has increased 100 times from US$4 billion to nearly US$400 billion this year. Putting people in the central position, being the subject in the development process, Vietnam has also paid special attention to the work of building people. As the focal point of many dynamic economic linkage networks, with 15 free trade agreements with about 60 partners, Vietnam has continued being an ideal destination for foreign investors. Upholding independence, self-reliance, being able to withstand external influences, being proactive in international integration and harmoniously linking internal and external resources during the process of building the economy, Vietnam has set up a solid economic foundation, showing self-resilience in times of crisis, most recently being the Covid-19 pandemic.

As soon as the pandemic was basically controlled, Vietnam soon opened up, bringing production and business activities back to normality. The country’s macro-economy remained stable, inflation was controlled at a low level and major balances of the economy were ensured. Vietnam's GDP growth in 2022 is likely to reach 7%. Many prestigious international organizations, namely Moody's, Fitch or Nikkei Asia, have positively assessed the prospect of Vietnam's economic recovery and development. Obviously, the country has found many opportunities to rise up, even make strong breakthroughs during the hard period.

The Deputy Prime Minister also wanted that delegates will exchange, discuss and contribute to the common success at the forum. First of all, it is necessary for them to deeply evaluate and carefully consider the impact of regional, inter-regional and global issues on Vietnam's prospects for comprehensive and sustainable recovery and development as well as the strategic cooperation relationship between Vietnam and India. Next is to position Vietnam in the “Act East” policy as well as in the overall foreign policy of India. Finally, they need to discuss proposals, solutions to converge resources, promote the green growth and sustainable development of Vietnam, making Vietnam really being an important and key bridge between India and Southeast Asia towards other Asian regions. The Deputy Prime Minister believes that the meeting will create opportunities for sides to share visions, seek opportunities and strengthen cooperation, promoting the spirit of "accompanying to overcome challenges, seizing new opportunities, developing comprehensively”.
