HA NOI (VNS)— Businesses from Viet Nam and the Umbria region of Italy met in Ha Noi on Thursday to discuss ways to strengthen co-operation.
Speaking at the event, the Italian Deputy Ambassador to Viet Nam said the Italian businesses' visit to the country showed they were interested in investment and trade opportunities with the local colleagues.
He added that the firms were on the road to achieving their goal of increasing investment in Viet Nam.
Michele D'Ercole, ICHAM Chairman, said the Italian businesses hoped to not only introduce their products but also offer technology training to their Vietnamese partners.
The visiting businesses operate in various areas, including food, cosmetics, pharmaceutical products, construction materials, healthcare, vehicle manufacturing and other industrial sectors. While trade between Viet Nam and Italy remains modest, Viet Nam remains a promising market for Italian businesses.
Last year, Italian firms invested $250 million in Viet Nam.
The event was organised by the Italian Chamber of Commerce in Viet Nam (ICHAM).-VNS
