Among the participating ASEAN countries, Vietnam’s pavilion had the largest scale with about 200 booths covering an area of nearly 5,000 square meters, displaying high-quality Vietnamese products and services.
In his remarks on September 17th, the PM was pleased at the large number of Vietnamese businesses participating in the expo, saying many transactions were signed on this occasion. According to him, thriving Vietnam-China Comprehensive Strategic Cooperative Partnership has created the foundation for the bilateral trade ties. However, ample room remains for further development in investment and trade relations.
PM Chinh asked businesses, ministries, agencies and localities to step up investment promotion activities, reform production technology, raise product quality, and build strong brands to facilitate the access of Vietnamese goods to China, contributing to deepening the Vietnam-China relationship practically and effectively. He hoped that with its geographical advantage, Vietnam will become a goods entrepot and a crucial link in the ASEAN-China supply chain.
Earlier, the PM also attended and delivered a speech at the opening ceremony of CAEXPO and China-ASEAN Business and Investment Summit (CABIS).
