Singapore Regional Business Forum will be held in Hanoi
This is the first time SBF has chosen to hold an overseas edition of this forum. It is expected to bring together industry leaders, government officials, policymakers, academics, and diplomats to foster regional partnerships and explore sustainable business opportunities.
Under the theme Strengthening Regional Collaboration for Sustainable Growth, the forum aims to accelerate economic relations and forge closer ties between Singapore and Vietnam. Prime Minister Pham Minh Chinh is expected to deliver a keynote address at the event.
On June 28, speaking to VIR at the seventh SRBF Press Conference, Kok Ping Soon, CEO of SBF, said that the theme was chosen to highlight the importance of collaboration, sustainability, and inclusive growth in driving the region's economic development.
“It reflects our commitment to be inclusive and promote sustainable development that benefits not only businesses but also the local and regional communities,” he added.

Top discussions at the upcoming seventh SRBF will include global tensions and prospects for building a socially, economically, and environmentally sustainable future for the region. There will be three other plenaries covering topics such as regional sustainability opportunities for investors, tech innovation in ASEAN’s digital development, and the future of human capital.
A series of side activities such as MoU signings, a launch ceremony, presentations by Vietnamese provincial leaders, online and face-to-face business matching, exhibitions, and industrial visits will supplement the SRBF's programme to help companies explore avenues for growth in the region.
SBF chairman Lim Ming Yan said, "The SRBF serves as a catalyst for regional collaboration, unlocking new opportunities and shaping a sustainable future for businesses in the region."
Soon added, "The SBF is committed to fostering regional partnerships, exploring sustainable business opportunities, and promoting collaboration among industry leaders. Through our inaugural overseas edition of SRBF, we aim to bring these discussions closer to our regional counterparts and empower organisations to thrive in the evolving global landscape. I am excited to meet and connect with participants at the event as we collectively shape the future of business in the region."
This year holds special significance as it marks the 50th anniversary of bilateral relations and the 10th anniversary of the Strategic Partnership between Singapore and Vietnam. The SRBF will serve as a platform to commemorate these milestones.
