The VBER conference is not an attempt to come up with short term solutions to the challenging issues currently facing Vietnam, rather, it is intended to provide opportunities to further examine how Vietnam’s long-term development can be enhanced. It also offered the chance for young Vietnamese scholars to present and receive constructive feedbacks to enhance their research skills through group discussions and conference sessions.
