Economic Policy Network


Economic Policy Network (EPNet) is a global network of pioneer economists, public policy scholars, practitioners, and experts willing to contribute to Vietnam’s sustainable development. Based on the collective intelligence principle, EPNet produces frequent advisory reports and consultancy missions with innovative economic policies for Vietnamese decision-makers. EPNet’s members continuously build the network’s capacity through two annual symposiums in International Business and Leadership and Public Policy, gathering international scholars and practitioners in the fields. A series of skills development workshops are also organized to allow EPNet’s members to grow together with the network.​
