HCM CITY (Biz Hub) — The 2016 Bloomberg ASEAN Business Summit will be held in Ha Noi on December 8 at the JW Marriot Hanoi Hotel.

In its third year, this annual conference will convene ASEAN leaders across business, finance and government in Viet Nam for the first time, to reflect on the progress the region has made, discuss ways to overcome challenges and identify key opportunities for growth, collaboration and development.

Parry Ravindranathan, Managing Director, International, Bloomberg Media, said "We anticipate incredibly stimulating conversations on ASEAN's economic advancement set against the backdrop of global uncertainty, fluctuations in commodities and oil prices, financial markets volatility, and the impact of the anticipated recovery of growth in key Asia markets in 2017.

Cross-border collaboration amongst companies and countries in ASEAN continues to be top of the agenda because it will accelerate growth and development."

Key topics of discussion at the summit will include a review of the ASEAN Economic Community (AEC) and intra-regional policy to date, Viet Nam and ASEAN's next stage of development, and cross-border investment and trade in the region.

Specific panel discussions will also take place to focus on growth sectors such as consumer goods, infrastructure, commodities and energy, banking and finance, and media and technology. — VNS
