In his opening speech, PhD. Nguyen Anh Son emphasized: the development of supporting industries is very important role in the economy, is the direct driving force to create added value, helps to increase the competitiveness of industrial products and promotes the process of national industrialization. Although we aware the important role of SI for the development of the economy in general and industry in particular, but the investment in resources for SI in Vietnam is incommensurate. With the tight state budget resources, very limited investments for supporting industries, enterprises  are very difficult to access the supports from the State. In additional, the supporting industrial enterprises now face many difficulties in capital and technology to be able to invest in equipment, transfer technology.

This status quo poses two problems:

+ Second problem of capital : overall, there are many funds for supports and incentives for businesses to develop production, but the access to enjoy this incentives are very entangled for enterprises because of procedure documents, themself ...

Mr. Can Van Luc - Banking and Finance Expert - gave solutions to promote the development of supporting industries: The Government needs to complete and update the supporting industries development strategic; establish the Development Fund for SI; early enactment supporting Small and Medium Enterprises Law; more balancing develop financial market;  implement intergration commitment… Financial institutions should simplify loan procedures and the transaction; improve project appraisal staff of SI; offer specialized packages for SI enterprises; strengthen financing according to supplying chain.
