Vietnam set itself a challenging target to become a Developed Economy by 2020. Over the past decade the economy has made big progress and had displayed impressive growth figures. At times where the global economy shows signs of slow-down Vietnam needs be concerned how to sustain and further increase the Key Industrial Clusters that were responsible for the strong economic growth. A particular challenge in this transformation process is to keep a Regional Balance and to ensure that all geographic regions (South, Center and the North) are equally participating and contributing to the desired result.
The regional competitiveness is here addressed and the strength of Supply Chain in each of the Industrial Clusters will make a major difference to how the macro-economic targets can be achieved. Other key developments in this setting are the increasing Trade among ASEAN plus China countries which posses a greater competitive threat to the Vietnamese economy as well as the political objective to complete the transformation and equalization of the SOEs and ensure their competitiveness in the marketplace.

· How can the Northern Economic Region best be connected between Southern China and the Center and Southern part of Vietnam?
· What Industry Cluster have already developed in the north and what adjacent sectors are appropriate to further encourage
· How can Regions develop long-term Growth in Production and Trade?
· How the current quality of Infrastructure and what is is the outlook for the next 5 years?

Topics and Speakers:

Logistics support to North Vietnam port system: How to plan to serve terminal’s cargo hinterland? Providing an analysis of current and future transport infrastructure projects to support to logistics development
Despite the fact that Vietnam’s coastline is of 3.260 km in length and Vietnam’s sea is located in the world’s key and most animated navigation line, Vietnam is, up to now, still not yet called a “maritime country”. North Vietnam’ seaport system is just of small scale and cannot meet the fast growing demand to serve and support North Vietnam and South West China Markets. That is why Vietnam government approved the Port master plan of Vietnam government to 2020 and vision to 2030 on December 2009 to give a guideline for port and logistics development. Correspondingly, the new key port project coming up could solve the problems and provide a hitch to economic development for North Vietnam. The overall analysis on logistics support and transportation infrastructure development will also be addressed to give a whole picture about the North Vietnam port system current and in future.
