Binh Duong, just north of Ho Chi Minh City, is steeped in history and culture. It’s considered to be the gateway to HCMC, the economic cultural center and most populous city in Vietnam. As such, Binh Duong is endowed with convenient geography conditions, and has an extremely important road network throughout the country.

In part because of this and the city’s important role as a center, Horasis Founder and Chairman Dr. Frank-Jürgen Richter (article’s featured photo) has announced that the Horasis China Meeting will take place in Binh Duong, Vietnam this April 14th-15th.

In addition to finding solutions to pressing regional and global challenges, the meeting will see 300 world leaders from business, government, academia, and civil society gather to support entrepreneurial trade and investment efforts for the city and world.

Horasis, an independent think-tank with headquarters in Zurich, Switzerland, was introduced in 2005, and its annual China Meeting has become one of the world’s foremost discussion forums. Its meetings offer an ideal platform to explore and foster cooperation, impact investing and sustainable growth across the world.

The Horasis China Meeting is one of the flagship events put on by Horasis, which also include the Horasis Global Meeting, the Horasis India Meeting, and the Horasis Asia Meeting. 

In 2024 the meeting, held in partnership with the the Southern Vietnamese Province Binh Duong and the China Federation of Industrial Economics, will focus on furthering ties between China and Vietnam, among other areas.

The world is currently in a critical period, as the impacts of economic imbalances, geopolitical forces and climate change place unprecedented pressure on regional and global systems.

Although these factors interact in seemingly uncontrolled ways, a collaborative approach from key decision-makers at the Horasis China Meeting will help mitigate some of the negative effects and rebuild trust in organizations from across the globe. 

“Our world faces unparalleled stress today. Now is the time for leaders to come together,” said Dr. Richter in a statement. 

“Only by working together will we be able to inspire our future, and address unprecedented environmental and economic challenges,” added the organization’s founder.  

The annual Horasis China Meeting will gather a long list of the world’s most prominent political and business leaders. Joining them will be numerous CEOs and representatives from some of the world’s most respected organizations.
