The Australia Chamber of Commerce in Vietnam, along with their Canadian and European counterparts, will co-host two business discussions on executive outlook and human capital in Vietnam next month.

Well-known speakers from a variety of sectors will share their ideas about corporate challenges and obstacles for the year 2011.

Don Lam, CEO of VinaCapital Group, a leading asset management and real estate consulting firm, Ralf Mathaes, managing director of TNS Vietnam, and Tom Tobin of HSBC Vietnam, are among speakers at the luncheon co-hosted with the Canadian Chamber of Commerce "The Year Ahead: Executive Summary and Outlook 2011."

The event will take place between 11 a.m. and 2 p.m., January 13 at New World Hotel Saigon, 76 Le Lai Street, District 1. Tickets cost US$40 for chamber members and $50 for non-members.

At another luncheon co-hosted with the European Chamber of Commerce, guest speakers Ton Nu Thi Ninh, Vietnam's former ambassador to the EU, and Vu Kim Hanh, executive director of the Center for Business Study and Assistance, will discuss "A Vision for Human Capital and Growth in Vietnam."

EuroCham said in a press release that more than 65 percent of Vietnam's workforce is unskilled and more than 50 percent of the people work with barebones social and health security. Within the ASEAN, Vietnam ranks in the lower half of human resources development, it said.

The luncheon will be held January 19, between 11:45 a.m. and 1:30 p.m. at Sofitel Saigon Plaza, 17 Le Duan Street, District 1. Tickets cost VND550,000 ($28) for chamber members and VND850,000 ($44) for nonmembers.
