The Hanoitimes – Around 500 students from Hanoi, Ho Chi Minh City and Danang held a dialogue with representatives from 50 big businesses in the capital city on January 12.
Representatives from businesses, such as Unilever, Suntory PepsiCo, Technombank, PwC, Microsoft and Panasonic and students discussed two main issues: social business spirit and business renovation.
The Youth to Business Forum, organised by British Council, the Vietnam Chamber of Commerce and Industry (VCCI) and AIESEC (the world’s largest student-run organisation) provides a good chance for students to directly share experience with experts to better equip themselves with necessary knowledge to build future careers.
Businesses can gain a better understanding about the younger generation and their development trends.
British Council Director in Vietnam Chris Brown said the forum introduced the social business spirit to 500 outstanding and dynamic students who may become employers or hold important business positions in the future.
Business spirit will focus on creative and effective business models to deal with social issues and contribute to sustainable environmental and social development. This is also the spirit that the British Council has pursued since 2009 through implementing a global project to build social business skills in Vietnam, Brown said.
