Prof. Ohno talks on SI at CEO Forum, VITV
(22Nov2010) Kenichi Ohno (Professor, GRIPS / Research Director, VDF) and Mr. Hiroyuki Moribe (Chief Representative, JETRO Hanoi) had a discussion on Vietnamfs supporting industries (SI) at CEO Forum (Vietnam Investment Television, VITV). The talk show was broadcasted at 13:00 on Saturday, 13 November 2010 (and re-broadcasted on 18 November 2010 too). Both speakers shared the same viewpoints that (i) development of supporting industries takes a long time, Vietnam is only at the early stage, thus should be patient and persistent; (ii) systematic international comparison of SI promotion policies is needed, not blind copy or random imitation; (iii) supporting industries are a good entry point for the nationfs industrialization and modernization; and (iv) what needs to be done is more or less known, the rest is implementation that needs more attentions from policy makers.
The show is available online via www.vtv.com.vn (VTC8).
