(VOV) - A conference on economic cooperation between Vietnamese and Italian businesses in the Lombardy region of Italy was held in Milan on June 16.
The event was co-organised by the Vietnamese embassy in Italy, the Vietnam Chamber of Commerce and Industry (VCCI) and the Business Association in Lombardy (ASSOLOMBARDA).
Speaking at the conference, Vietnamese ambassador to Italy Dang Khanh Thoai talked about the country’s political and socio-economic situations as well as its business potential.
He also called for Italian businesses to invest more in the country and confirmed that Vietnam will always be Italy’s faithful partner.
Italian businesses now have many opportunities to invest in or export their products to Vietnam in fields such as construction, machinery, mining exploration, agriculture, chemicals, building materials and tourism. They can also transfer their latest technologies for environmental protection and wastewater treatment.
ASSOLOMBARDA officer for international trade, Chiara Fanali, stressed that Vietnam has great potential for economic development and is very attractive to international businesses, especially those from Italy.
Vietnamese small and medium sized enterprises are very suitable for Italian businesses, which makes them want to seek cooperative opportunities in Vietnam, she added.
She also acknowledged the Vietnamese embassy’s contributions to promoting bilateral economic cooperation and hoped that the embassy will be a good link for businesses from both countries.
