According to Le Long Giang, director of the Vietnam Financial Advisers Association (VFCA), the second most important technology in the world at the moment is blockchain. A powerful new extraction method is that has the potential to disrupt economic patterns and alter future markets.

“In developing economies, blockchain has the ability to propel them to new heights. Educators, researchers, technology transfer agents, and entrepreneurs all play key roles in this process. A fifth goal, which has just been launched, is that of universities as co-creators of sustainable development. University participation in such a process should be encouraged,” he emphasised.

Digital and blockchain technology, financial laws and norms, big data, financial markets and institutions in the age of technology, and fintech behaviour and performance were all on the agenda for the conference. Finance and economics-related subjects such as behavioural finance and business models were also discussed.

An additional workshop on blockchain applications in finance and banking was also organised during the event to open scientific collaboration between universities, institutions, and research centres in Vietnam and throughout the globe.
