Launched initially with one issue a month, it now publishes four monolingual (English) issues and two bilingual (English - Vietnamese) issues monthly, and a Japanese- Vietnamese bilingual issue every two months. In addition to province/city-themed special publications in support of localities promoting trade and investment, VBF focuses on building and developing in-depth issues featuring industries, events and diplomatic relations between Vietnam and other countries. VBF not only interconnects businesses and investors, but also serves as a market database for the business community and managers.
Besides, VBF publishes many highly-appreciated publications especially designed for the business community such as Vietnam Exporter Directory; Vietnam’s Economic Regions: Potential and Investment Opportunities; 40 Years of Vietnam –Japan Cooperation: Strategic Partners and Fine Friendly Relations and others.
In addition, the magazine also organises several major business-matching events to create a platform for enterprises to generate and seek business and investment opportunities. Noteworthy events included Vietnam - Japan Economic Summit, Vietnam - China Seminar, and International Medical Cooperation Promotion Conference in Vietnam. Particularly, the annual Vietnam - Singapore Business Forums co-organised by VBF are warmly praised by the Governments and business communities of the two countries. In the framework of these events, several cooperation agreements were signed by companies of the two countries.
In the coming time, VBF will step up information on external affairs, closely follow major political, economic, social events and programmes, introduce the potentials of provinces and cities, and report the difficulties of the business community to relevant bodies. VBF will also accelerate related activities to further support the business community.
