Postponement of the 7th annual Vietnam International Conference in Finance

Due to the significant uncertainty and travel-related difficulties surrounding the Covid-19 pandemic, the VICIF conference organizers have made the difficult decision to postpone the conference until early July of 2021.

We sincerely regret any inconvenience caused by this postponement. Health, safety and travel experience of all participants are our highest priority. Unfortunately, the situations around the pandemic are unprecedented, and it has become very difficult to hold a productive and enjoyable conference in early July this year.

We would like to thank you for your support of the past and current VICIF conferences. Towards the end of the year, we will provide more details about the 2021 conference on SSRN announcements and the conference website ( For further information, please do not hesitate to contact us at

We wish you all good health and safety.
