Accordingly, Vietnam Design Week 2021 is a programme to honour excellent Vietnamese products and designers in the fields of: communication design, furniture design, decoration design, costume design, and public design.

The highlight programme of Vietnam Design Week 2021 is the "Designed by Vietnam" contest, inspired by cultural traditions and folk knowledge to create highly applicable products bearing the value of the Vietnamese design brand.

Also within the framework of the programme, a series of activities including exhibitions, seminars, workshops, and performances will also feature the participation of many experienced and well-known designers in the design fields, aiming to encourage a change of thinking in exploitation, renewing traditional values, and promoting sustainable design trends; thereby promoting the development of the design industry in particular and the cultural and creative industry in Vietnam in general, while increasing the value of Vietnamese creative products in the international market.
