HÀ NỘI — Prime Minister Nguyễn Xuân Phúc hosted a reception for the Chairman of the Thai Charoen Corporation (TCC) Charoen Sirivadhanabhakdi in Hà Nội yesterday.
Congratulating the Thai group on its successful business activities in Việt Nam, the PM hailed TCC’s win-win business philosophy and called on the group to increase its investments in Việt Nam.
Businesses of both countries would play an important role in bringing bilateral trade to US$20 billion by 2020, the PM said.
Phúc suggested TCC continue exporting Vietnamese goods to Thailand via its retail networks in Việt Nam and Thailand, following its shipment of 100 tonnes of Vietnamese dragon fruit to Thailand for the first time.
Việt Nam was committed to creating a favourable business environment for foreign investors, including those from Thailand, the PM said.
The Thai business executive said he hoped the Vietnamese Government would continue to facilitate the group’s operations in Việt Nam.
He said Việt Nam was a key market for the TCC, which was applying for permission to export Vietnamese goods to Thailand and other regional countries, including oranges, sweet potatoes, limes and rice powder. — VNS
