It will also help prepare the City to become a regional financial center by 2045, as visioned by the leadership of Vietnam.

Placing Switzerland the focus of the tour, the Delegation will spend four days, 24-27 May, in Geneva, Bern, Zurich and Zug meeting with administrators, executives and academics in the field of finance to seek potential cooperation in and transfers of technical assistance, experience, operational skills, management know-how and investments in the coming years.
