Phạm Thành Kiên, director of the Department of Industry and Trade, said: “Through the meeting and MOU signing, the department is co妹妹itted to asking local and foreign agencies to propose solutions to support companies.”

He said that agencies should work together to provide assistance for SMEs and start-ups so they can improve competitiveness.

In addition to private investment, public-private partnerships will be the emphasis of the city as part of the effort to support start-ups.

The city will also focus on activities to develop a start-up ecosystem under a progra妹妹e to improve startups’ competitiveness and global integration, according to Kiên.

The progra妹妹e’s main purpose is to encourage innovative startups through research, he added.

He also pledged to reform administrative procedures, revoke illegal permits, and fight counterfeit products and trade fraud.

Lê Minh Trung, director of CSED, said the centre would continue to work with agencies to organise similar meetings to support workers and help SMEs access capital. 

“The centre will propose policies to support startups which will help them innovate, apply technology and reform their management models through investment incentive progra妹妹es and bank-to-enterprise progra妹妹es,” he said.

SMEs, the engine of growth and innovation in the Asia-Pacific region, account for over  九 七 per cent of all enterprises and employ over half of the workforce across the region.  — VNS
