HCM CITY (VNS) — HCM City People's Committee deputy chairman Le Thanh Liem has praised the Service Company to Foreign Missions (FOSCO) for completing the tasks assigned by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and the city administration.
Speaking at a New Year meeting with foreign envoys, international organisations, and representative offices of foreign economic agencies in HCM City on Friday, he said the specialised State firm for diplomatic services has also done a good job of public diplomacy, building relationships with foreign diplomatic missions and international organisations, NGOs, and representative offices.
Last year the country underwent deep global integration, especially economic, with the formation of the ASEAN Economic Community and signing or imminent signing of several free trade agreements, he said.
In this situation, the business community, including FOSCO, stands to benefit much but also faces many challenges, he said. — VNS
