A seminar aimed at helping businesses be prepared for natural disasters
was held in Hanoi on March 8 by the Vietnam Chamber of Commerce and
Industry (VCCI).

VCCI’s Standing Vice President Hoang Van Dung
stressed that Vietnam ’s top concern is how to be proactive in coping
with natural disaster risks and mitigating their consequences at a time
when climate change is challenging the globe.

Business’s
capacity to deal with natural calamity risks is important to the whole
economy, said Kim Ngoc Bao Ninh, chief representative of the Asian
Foundation in Vietnam , which co-organised the event together with
the US Agency for International Development (USAIDS).

The seminar, therefore, offered participants, who are representatives
from businesses nationwide, state administration agencies and experts,
to discuss and devise common actions to be taken in the time to come.

Lessons
learnt from private-public partnerships in natural disaster risks
management at small and medium-size enterprises and businesses’
fulfillment of social responsibilities were shared at the seminar.

Outcomes of the seminar will be sent to relevant agencies to
contribute to policies and programmes relating to the issue.-VNA
