Addressing the event, Vietnamese Ambassador to Thailand Phan Chi Thanh said that trade between Viet Nam and Thailand - the largest partner of Viet Nam among ASEAN countries reached about 19.5 billion USD in 2021.

He held that promoting trade and investment between the two countries through connecting OV entrepreneurs with their peers at home and Vietnamese localities is effective, helping attract more investment and strengthen the OV businesses’ links with the homeland.

Representatives from the Trade Promotion Agency under the Ministry of Industry and Trade briefed participants on policies to encourage OVs to invest in Viet Nam.

Meanwhile, leaders of Bac Giang and Kien Giang provinces also informed participants about their current partnership with OV businesses in exporting the local products to other countries, while highlighting the investment opportunities in the localities.

At the event, many OV entrepreneurs in Thailand showed their interest in investing in Viet Nam, especially in service and tourism sectors.

Speaking at the event, Deputy Minister of Foreign Affairs Pham Quang Hieu, who is also Chairman of the State Committee for OV Affairs, said that he hopes the OV community around the world will continue to help promote Vietnamese products in their host countries, while considering the investment in the homeland, especially in green and sustainable development, industry, high technology and renovation, thus making contributions to the national construction.

Hieu suggested ministries, sectors and localities continue stepping up OV affairs and make their environment more favourable and friendly for the community to invest in.

The dialogue was the initiative of the State Committee for OV Affairs, the Trade Promotion Agency, the Foreign Investment Agency and the Vietnamese Embassy in Thailand.
