Regarding the outcome of this year’s biggest multilateral diplomatic event, Klaus Schwab said that the WEF ASEAN 2018 was successful in terms of content and organizational activities. During the 60 discussions, interactions have been conducted effectively between startups and researchers. The success of the organisation work was also demonstrated through the rational arrangement of activities along with good logistics work and ensured security. Besides, as many as 6.7 million people followed the event via Facebook and Twister, making 13,000 comments. The network, LinkedIn alone, attracted close to 33,500 followers with numerous comments. The number of news items and articles on the WEF event in Vietnam was four times higher than those of WEF meetings in other regional countries. PM Phuc, in turn, thanked Prof. Klaus Schwab and the WEF Organising Committee for their closer cooperation with and support for Vietnam in successfully hosting the important event which, he said, has opened up a new chapter in the collaboration between the WEF and the country.
