For years, Western observers have talked about Asia’s massive future potential. But the future arrived even faster than expected. The question is no longer how quickly Asia will rise; it is how Asia will lead.

– McKinsey & Company

 

Asia is on track to top 50 percent of global GDP by 2040 and drive 40 percent of the world’s consumption, representing a real shift in the world’s centre of gravity.

As all the countries progress rapidly, Vietnam is also committed to contribute to the global partnership of Sustainable Development Goals by the United Nations. Some of the 17 goals for peace and prosperity speak to poverty, gender equality, clean energy, quality education, and many more.

As Vietnam’s next generation of entrepreneurs, how might we bring forward innovative solutions for the country that contributes to Asia’s development?
