Speaking at the event, Chairman of the committee Phung Cong Dung said in recent years, Vietnamese worldwide have wanted to contribute to local development. However, conditions for startups, including legal framework, incentives and venture funds, remain limited so fiscal policy is the most important thing for them to thrive.
 
Deputy head of the State Committee for Overseas Vietnamese Affairs Nguyen Hoanh Nam said the business environment in Vietnam is vibrant, with annual gross domestic product surpassing 6 percent.
