A panel discussion on challenges and opportunities for women
October 12, 2014

HANOI, October 12, 2014 -- More than one hundred women entrepreneurs from throughout Vietnam gathered today at the Vietnam Women Entrepreneurs Forum 2014, supported by the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID), to share successful business models and to discuss challenges and opportunities for women.

The forum, themed ‘Vietnam Women Entrepreneurs Towards the Future’ and organized by the Vietnam Women Entrepreneurs Council (VWEC) of the Vietnam Chamber of Commerce and Industry (VCCI) with support from USAID’s Governance for Inclusive Growth (GIG) program, also sought inputs and suggestions from the participants for the development of VWEC’s strategy towards 2020 to build a strong national organization that can effectively represent the voice of women entrepreneurs in policy advocacy and support its members in doing business.

HANOI -- It is a pleasure to be here with you today for this important workshop. It's a workshop that will provide an opportunity to review and formulate a policy that will improve the economic livelihood of people living with HIV and AIDS, their families, and communities. But first, you will hear about successful strategies for increasing access to credit and working capital so PLHIV and other vulnerable populations can create employment for themselves and others.

HANOI -- It is an honor for me to join people who are so dedicated to making Vietnam a more inclusive society for people with disabilities. The theme of this year’s International Day could not be more important. “Removing barriers” and being more inclusive – those are goals that resonate in every country, including my own. But they mean nothing without leadership in government and in society.

As supported by the United States, LMI has implemented programs through a variety of interagency partners on both sides of the Pacific. The U.S. Agency for International Development, my employer, is proud to have a prominent role in that support. Through bilateral programs in LMI countries and regional initiatives managed from offices in Bangkok, we have been particularly active in promoting cooperation on health, environment and water, and education. USAID is hardly the only agency involved, however.
