Speaking at the event, Vietnamese Ambassador to Italy Cao Chinh Thien stressed this was the right time for business cooperation as relations between the two countries were thriving.
Viet Nam and Italy regard economic collaboration as a pillar of bilateral ties, he noted, adding that partnerships formed between Vietnamese provinces and Italian regions will contribute to the realisation of the two governments’ commitments.
Vice chairman of Binh Duong People’s Committee Mai Hung Dung said his province was among the fastest growing localities in Viet Nam and local authorities always attach importance to the success of investors. He affirmed Binh Duong welcomes Italian investors, especially those from Campania region, to study the local market, which could serve as a gateway to regional markets.
Earlier, a trade promotion delegation from Binh Duong, led by Dung, held a working session with Campania’s leaders. The two sides agreed to study the signing of a cooperation pact with a specific roadmap for partnership in terms of investment, production, culture and education. Home to six million people, Campania is the largest economic hub in southern Italy, with advantages in services, tourism, garment, mechanics and shipbuilding.
