Ambassador Nguyen Dinh Thao told representatives of the roughly 50 organizations that attended about the country’s economic growth over the past decade, noting that it has been one of the most robust in ASEAN.
The Ambassador also talked at length about legislative changes made by the Vietnam Government aimed at reducing red tape and streamlining governmental policies and procedures to make the business climate more conducive to the needs of foreign transnationals.
He noted that the Vietnam government has specifically targeted expanding trade with Argentina in the agriculture, telecommunications, energy and pharmacy segments of the economy.
Carlos Restaino, president of the Commission for Integration and Southern Common Market (Mercosur), in turn, spoke about the enormous potential for both cooperation in the public sector and collaboration in the private sector for the mutual benefit of both countries.
Vietnam, he underscored, is one of the high priority markets for Argentina and a gateway for transnationals from the South American country to gain market entry to the entire ASEAN region.
