ALGIERS — Viet Nam's Ambassador to Algeria, Do Trong Cuong, and Viet Nam's Trade Counsellor, Nguyen Van Mui, met with the Chamber of Commerce and Industry from the Algerian region of Constantine (CCIC) to boost co-operation in trade and labour.
President of the CCIC Omar Mehsas said that Algerian businesses are keen to tap into Viet Nam's strengths and learn from the country's experience with construction, agriculture and seafood products, textiles and garments and traditional medicines.
Ambassador Cuong said that Viet Nam has much to share with regard to construction techniques, materials and worker training. Algeria's representative said that there will be more detailed discussions when the Vietnamese construction corporation Viglacera goes to Algeria to attend its International Construction Exhibition in May.
Algeria noted trade potential in a number of specific areas and suggested that Viet Nam provide specialists on the ground for training purposes.
Omar said an Algerian business delegation would visit Viet Nam to lay the foundations for long-term co-operation. — VNS
