Introduction about Ysummit

Posted on May 1, 2011

Ysummit connects Vietnamese students and professionals in a discussion on how youths can be more involved in Vietnam’s development. It serves to inaugurate a platform (Yplatform) for Vietnamese youths to exchange ideas and explore practical opportunities to translate their talents into meaningful impacts for Vietnam.

The theme for Ysummit 2010 is “Discover Opportunities to Groom Your Talents for Vietnam”.



Ysummit is the very first youth conference in Singapore aiming to connectempower and inspire young Vietnamese students and professionals to take the lead in the future waves of challenges. The summit serves as the starting point of a long-term plan, with a vision of building a platform (Yplatform) where Vietnamese youths can find mutual voices and seek support to realize their ideas, and creating a powerful network of committed and empowered individuals who keep Vietnam close to their heart and wish to support her progress in different ways.

It is the first of its series of events targeting Vietnamese youths, and strives to accomplish:

  1. An insightful and engaging exchange of ideas and experiences from Vietnamese people from different walks of lives.
  2. A realization by each participant of different ways to align their personal development to the development of the country.
  3. The first step to a network of committed and empowered individuals which will serve as a platform (Yplatform) for its member to materialize their ideas.

Our Ysummit has various topics to cater to different needs of people from all walks of life. We want to make sure that every participant can make the best out of this experience!
