The Vietnamese economy grew last year with 6.5% - the 2nd fastest growth in Asia and will become the 14th largest economy in 2050 (*), the country is now the third largest oil producer in South East Asia and has become an active petroleum prospecting region.

Capital expenditure in the Vietnamese oil & gas sector will remain high as exploration success is on the rise in Vietnam. In 2010, seven new oil fields were discovered and five new oil wells were put into production including three in Vietnam and two overseas.

Vietnam’s oil and gas “Master Plan Toward 2015 and Vision to 2025” will require an investment of $200 billion, in which Petrovietnam’s share will be $80 billion. In 2010, the country’s first refinery started operation, the second, the third refinery and petrochemical complex are scheduled to come on-stream in 2013 and 2014. Recently approved national master plan for power development needs $120 billion investment.

Vietnam offers therefore a huge potential for Dutch companies active in oil & gas, power generation and energy sector.

The top level forum on September 29th will mark an important phase for the partnership in the energy sector – which is one of the five focus sectors in bilateral relationship between The Netherlands and Vietnam with:

 • The launching of AETIN (Advanced Energy Technology INternational) - the 2g@there program for oil and gas sector in Vietnam

the co-ordinator of AETIN

• The signing MoU between TU Delft and Petrovietnam University

 The signing of MoU’s and LoI will be also witnessed by high level diplomats and other VIP’s from both countries.

 This forum is organized to open opportunities for companies from two countries to join, to witness important events, to meet the key decision makers in energy sectors on both sides and to exchange idea for co-operation.
