C.T Group chairman Tran Kim Chung urged more funds to go towards the development of the younger generations at Dialogue 2045 held in the afternoon of March 6. He emphasised that the young generation cannot be left out of the conversation on Vietnam’s growth until 2045.

Chung shared that according to its vision to 2045, C.T Group will focus on six major programmes, including building affordable houses for young people and developing talented young human resources.

The group will also make efforts to develop young urban areas around big cities as well as participate in mobilising and contributing capital to the Ho Chi Minh City high-speed railway connecting with western provinces. Another programme is building satellite megacities around Ho Chi Minh City.

In addition, C.T Group aims to develop four leading high-tech startups in the field of fintech, proptech, cell technology (cell tech) and flytech. Until now, the technical infrastructure of two of these companies has been completed. At the same time, the group will contribute to Ho Chi Minh City’s efforts to prevent flooding and build a greener environment by restoring the Vinh Loc ecological lake project in the city’s Binh Chanh district. The group is also developing a digital bank to support export activities.

According to Chung, C.T Group's programmes are based on the long-standing strengths of the country such as its geographical location, population, and Vietnamese intelligence.

Chung proposed the government to support enterprises to build an international media campaign titled "Invest in Vietnam" to highlight Vietnam as a bright spot of the COVID-19 fight with high economic growth in the world. Vietnam is committed to accompanying enterprises to quickly solve any administrative problems, facilitating them to achieve sustainable development and venture into the global market. In short-term period, the country is quickly completing its legal framework on Public-Private Partnership investment.

He added that the government should make strong investment in activities supporting intelligent young people with aspirations. Vietnam needs to quickly complete the legal framework for the development and application of cell tech and flytech.

In particular, investment should be focused on developing transport infrastructure from Ho Chi Minh City to the western provinces and educational infrastructures for the Mekong Delta to nurture future human resources.
