This event was implemented simultaneously with the organization of the "Media and Business Forum for Vietnam's Prosperity and Happiness" by the Economic Information Center (BIZIC), Enterprise Forum Magazine, and related units.

In addition to the aforementioned foundational activities, according to Chairman Pham Tan Cong, in 2023, VCCI also engaged in many significant activities that resonated in society. These included the successful organization of the 60th anniversary celebration of VCCI's establishment, which enhanced VCCI's credibility and impressive image in the eyes of international friends and the business community. This event established VCCI's position and image within the nationwide business community.
