Professor Tran Dinh Thien, senior advisor to Vietnamese Prime Minister, will speak at the Club de Madrid-BGF Policy Lab, Plenary V: The United Nations Centennial Initiative: The Practice of Fundamental Rights in AI & Digital Societies
Below are some notes from his speech:
“The whole world in general and the United Nations in particular are moving towards a historic event: the UN Centennial Initiative – Building an Age of Global Enlightenment.
I don’t know if it is a “historical accident” or not: it is also the 100th anniversary of Vietnam’s Independence, entering a new era of development.
That means for Vietnam, 2045 will be a double milestone year. As a “friendly and companionable” people, the Vietnamese will strive to build their country into a civilized and prosperous nation, to invite the whole world to Vietnam in the position of moving forward side-by-side.
To end my “clumsy” speech, with many pronunciation errors, I would like to introduce to you one of Vietnam’s contributions to the United Nations Centennial initiative. That is to build NovaWorld Phan Thiet City into a leading healthcare and Wellness tourism destination, combined with AIWS City online digital city to become a typical city to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the United Nations.
Vietnam has many unique tourism resources, in which Phan Thiet of Binh Thuan province is a wonderful coastal tourist city. This place has held the position of “resort capital”, connecting with Nha Trang, Ninh Thuan, Vung Tau, Ho Chi Minh City and Da Lat to form an attractive tourist area at the highest level. This place is also a very suitable city for healthcare and Wellness tourism because of its mild climate, blue sea, white sand, golden sunshine and full facilities from luxury resorts like NovaWorld in Phan Thiet.
Nova World Phan Thiet and AIWS City will become a typical model, an ecosystem with the standards and ambitions that the United Nations Centennial Initiative is aiming for, with the companionship of the WLA-CdM.
Vietnam invites world leaders, ideologists, innovators to come to Phan Thiet, support the plan to build NovaWorld Phan Thiet, participate in contributing ideas for the contest “How to make Phan Thiet become the world’s leading destination for healthcare and Wellness tourism, in line with new trends after the Covid-19 pandemic. We are looking forward to receiving ideas and unique solutions to help Phan Thiet city develop, take the lead in building an ecosystem for a new economy, an economy for all creative citizens (Community Innovation Economy), deserving to be the typical city which pioneers and shines in the Age of Global Enlightenment, celebrating the 100th anniversary of the United Nations.
