HA NOI (VNS)— Prime Minister Nguyen Tan Dung will promote Vietnamese business interests when he attends the two-day ASEAN-China Expo (CAEXPO) today.
The event is the ninth ASEAN-China Business and Investment Summit, and is taking place in Nanning, the capital of China's Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region. The PM's visit takes place as the friendship and co-operation between Viet Nam and China develops rapidly in all fields, bringing practical benefits for both sides.
CAEXPO is held annually by the Chinese Ministry of Commerce and the 10 ASEAN countries and the ASEAN Secretariat.
Amongst the countries participating at this year's expo, Viet Nam has the largest number of stands, with 200 covering an area of 3,500sq.m. Last year Vietnamese businesses occupied 196 stands out of the 1,200 taken by ASEAN countries. Since then 120 of those businesses have signed contracts worth US$950 million. — VNS
