Mr. Kwon Tae - Shin - Vice Chairman of FKI made a speech

Former Korean Prime Minister presented the topic: Shared Growth between Vietnam and Korea on the Foundation of Trust. As a role of former Korean Prime Minister and Chairman of Korea Institue for Shared Growth, Dr Chang explained what shared growth exactly is and how the principles apply to shared growth between Vietnam and Korea. He confidently argued that education plays a crucial role in a long-term solution. Universities must share growth with the local community and serve as the source of energy for creativity.

Especially, Dr. Chang believed that this conference by the International Management Institute (IMI) of the Federation of Korean Industries (FKI) and the University of Economics Ho Chi Minh City (UEH) would contribute to promoting bilateral cooperation between Vietnam and Korea. The IMI, which is a part of Korea's leading private organization FKI, would be able to transfer the successful know-how of Korean companies to Vietnamese companies. The FKI can offer know-hows that have accumulated for the past 40 years of programs such as corporate education that includes the CEO program, the next-generation CEO program, global cooperation, and many more. He believed that the cooperation between the two organizations would contribute to the shared growth of Vietnam and Korea.
