Participants in the conference listened to 4 discussions about: Scientific and topical features of Economic thoughts since Keynes; Issue of economic policies of Vietnam in the context of contemporary economic idea flows; Understanding of economic thoughts behind the economic policies of Vietnam; and Economic thoughts and policies: Which ones are curing policies and which ones act as tranquillizer, etc.

Next, delegates had an enthusiastic discussion about the topics mentioned in the 4 above discussions. The most concerned issue at the conference was: How Vietnam should understand and evaluate the contemporary economic idea flows.

In the first step of integration in the global economy and in an effort to help the country soon escape from the poor situation and strive towards sustainable growth, the urgency of topical economic issues makes it increasingly necessary to understand and acquire the contemporary economic flows. The presentation of translated version of the book "Economic thoughts since Keynes, history and dictionary of major contemporary authors" and other works on economic schools following liberalism is the occasion when people express their concern about the daily impact of economic thought and to exchange the attitude towards the acquisition and effect of different trends and the feasibility of world experiences in applying and turning the theories into practical policies.
