As the local Government introduced recent initiatives to promote a more diverse energy mix from bio-fuel to nuclear, there has been a positive reaction from the power sector. Major industry players are increasing their activities in the country with the corresponding increased realization of the yet to be explored energy ability of Vietnam.

In the oil & gas front, Vietnam is striving to meet energy security by exploiting new reserves and field developments. Blocks availability in North Vietnam and prospects of deepwater exploration could lead to more opportunities for investments in the upstream sector. The 13th VOGP (Vietnam Oil, Gas and Power) in Hanoi will be a timely platform for many of the top senior management speakers to share their experiences and insights with those keen to learn more about the changes enveloping Vietnam.

(Statkraft Norfund Power) presenting on "Opportunities in renewable energy in Vietnam and creating the optimal investment climate." Touching on key investment criteria, current roadblocks, and market outlook, he will be providing one of the foremost views on what investors can expect in Vietnam's sustainable renewable energy future.

The 13th VOGP conference will additionally offer an evening drinks reception for delegates to meet peers in an informed setting.
