Speaking at the event, Vietnamese Ambassador to Belarus Le Anh said Vietnam and Belarus have numerous prospects for expanding win-win bilateral trade and economic relations in the time ahead.
The envoy proposed the two sides should actively take part in conferences on business as well as introducing goods at fairs in both countries in order to boost ties, particularly in areas of agriculture, machinery manufacturing and milk production.
Anh affirmed with the signing of the free trade agreement (FTA) between Vietnam and the Eurasian Economic Union (EAEU), the two countries will have more driving forces to develop the ties more effectively .
The event saw the participation of more than 20 delegations from 11 countries, including Brazil, Germany, China, Russia, and Vietnam.
Belarus has imported several products from Vietnam including tea, rice, and seafood.
The country is strong in chemistry, petrochemistry, automobiles and hi-technology.
