ROME —The Italy-Việt Nam Chamber of Commerce (CCIV) will open a representative office in HCM City in June to support Vietnamese and Italian firms seek partnerships, according to its President Fulvio Albano.
This year, the Turin-based CCIV will work closely with the Vietnamese Embassy in Italy and the Honorary Consul of Việt Nam in Turin to promote bilateral cooperation in economy, trade and service, with tourism being a prioritised sector, Albano told the Vietnam News Agency on March 24.
The CCIV plans to organise a series of bilateral events in Turin, including the arrangement of a visit by officials from the Vietnamese Embassy to Turin and Piedmont region and the introduction of Việt Nam's business and investment potential to Italian firms, he said.
Founded in 1996, the CCIV is one of the first bilateral chambers of commerce set up in Italy and recognised by Italy’s Ministry of International Trade, which is now the Ministry of Economic Development. It is a member of the union of chambers of commerce (Unioncamere) of Italy.
The CCIV has worked to help bolster economic and trade partnerships between the two countries and reinforce the traditional relationship through coordination with various friendship organisations in Turin. VNS
