In his opening remarks, Chairman Hue said the forum  was a chance for the NA and relevant agencies to listen to proposals from domestic and foreign experts, development partners, legislators, people, and businesses to help with socio-economic recovery and sustainable development, towards promoting innovation, green growth, and digital transformation.

Chairman Hue emphasised that to cope with the COVID-19 pandemic and support socio-economic development over the last two years, Vietnam has applied fiscal and monetary policies and other macro-policies in a relatively uniform manner. The National Assembly has issued resolutions, legal frameworks, socio-economic development plans, and those on financial - budgetary affairs, public debt, public investment, and economic restructuring for 2021 - 2025.
At the event’s plenary session, participants gained an overview of the global economic situation amid the pandemic and put forth several policy recommendations for Vietnam to boost recovery and sustainable development.
