HA NOI (VNS)— The Ministry of Industry and Trade announced that it would organise a business trip for domestic enterprises to seek business opportunities in Egypt and Sudan from November 16-24.
The trip, to be led by deputy minister Le Duong Quang, would be a good chance for local firms to better understand demand in these markets, meet directly with native businesses to advertise their products and exchange co-operation opportunities, the ministry said.
Egypt is one of Viet Nam's most important export markets. Viet Nam's exports to the country hit $256 million in 2011, up 47 per cent year-on-year. Sudan, meanwhile, is considered an emerging market for Vietnamese exporters even though two-way trade reached a modest $24.6 million in 2011 and Viet Nam enjoyed a trade surplus of $20.4 million.-VNS
