Speaking at the opening ceremony, Assoc.Prof.Dr.Tran Van Hoa, Rector of the University of Economics said that in the context of globalization and the rise of the fourth industrial revolution, rapid changing socio-economic issues posed great challenges for the countries in choosing the right policies and management tools so as to restructure the economy, to change the institutional system, policies and to improve the effectiveness of national governance, ensuring stable and sustainable economic development. This requires scientists in each country to do research and exchange lessons learned to find appropriate management models to make best use of their countries' socio-economic advantages, thereby assisting the government in choosing the best path for development.

  

The Conference on Public Economic Theory (PET) 2018 is an opportunity for speakers and scientists to share their experiences in building capacity in teaching, research and consultancy in the formulation of fiscal policies, monetary policy, public investment, econometric model, etc. which proved the close cooperation among scientists from different countries in the world.
