HCM CITY (VNS) — The Swedish ambassador to Viet Nam took part last week in the opening ceremony of the eighth UMA store, a leading furniture and home decor brand in Viet Nam.
Ambassador Camilla Mellander said, "UMA represented a successful cooperation model between Swedish and Vietnamese businesses that is expected to further develop in the future."
The products are a combination of Swedish style and Vietnamese culture, she said, adding, "Customers can access high quality products at reasonable costs."
The new store, located inside the Big C supermarket in HCM City's Phu Nhuan District, is a 50-50 joint venture between Vietnamese and Swedish partners.
Next week, UMA will open another store in southern Binh Duong Province, raising the total number of UMA stores in Viet Nam to nine. — VNS
