HÀ NỘI — Prime Minister Nguyễn Xuân Phúc hosted Jonathan Choi, Chairman of the Hong Kong-Việt Nam Chamber of Commerce and President of Sunwah Group, in Hà Nội on Tuesday.
The PM underlined the sound co-operation between Việt Nam and China – and particularly Hong Kong – in various fields such as the economy, trade, investment, tourism and culture.
Choi expressed his pleasure at the fact that many Hong Kong firms do successful business in Việt Nam, including Sunwah, thanks to the facilitation of the Prime Minister, the Vietnamese Government and relevant agencies.
Many Chinese enterprises are eyeing investment in Việt Nam in the fields of start-up, tourism, energy and infrastructure, he added.
PM Phúc said he supports activities to increase culture and education co-operation between Việt Nam and China, and to promote people-to-people exchanges.
He hailed the chamber for organising many activities to connect Chinese and Japanese businesses to jointly invest in Việt Nam as well as encourage Chinese firms to help Vietnamese farm produce reach the global market.
The leader suggested the chamber host more similar activities to step up co-operation between Vietnamese and Chinese companies, not only for coffee and rice but also for seafood and other products.
The PM welcomed Chinese firms to invest in transport infrastructure and energy in Việt Nam, noting that the Government will create the best possible conditions for foreign investors to do business in Việt Nam without causing environmental pollution.
He also called for bilateral co-operation in tourism, revealing Việt Nam’s target of serving 50 million international visitors per year in the near future. — VNS
