SYDNEY — Vietnamese Ambassador to Australia Nguyễn Tất Thành attended a ceremony to inaugurate the Việt Nam-Australia Investment and Trade Promotion Centre on November 20.

The centre, located in Melbourne city of Victoria state, is set up and run by the Vietnamese Business Association in Australia (VBAA).

VBAA President Trần Bá Phúc said the centre would help promote Vietnamese products in Australia as well as trade between the two countries.

In the long-term, it would organise trade fairs on high-quality Vietnamese goods and farm produce, towards the signing of contracts shipping Vietnamese products to the Oceanian market.

Hailing the VBAA’s initiative to set up the centre and contribution of the Vietnamese entrepreneurs in Australia, Ambassador Thành affirmed that the Vietnamese representative offices in the country would create the best conditions for the operation of the centre.

Việt Nam-Australia trade hit US$10 billion in October, surging 50 per cent against the same period last year. — VNS
