At the function, Nguyen Dang, Director of the Cao Bang Department of Industry and Trade, proposed both sides increase trade promotion activities and the exchange of business delegations for market study.
The sides should also join hands to help more Vietnamese farm produce enter the Henan market, he suggested, noting that Vietnam’s agricultural exports to China include cashew, rice, dried tea, and fresh fruit.
Sun Jing Lin, deputy head of the Henan Department of Commerce, stressed his province has strength in agricultural and tourism development, while housing a large number of big enterprises.
Lauding Dang’s suggestions, Sun asked the Cao Bang department to turn these into plans and activities.
Participating firms presented their business intentions and the wish to form partnerships with Chinese companies in agriculture, tourism, and industry.
Cao Bang shares over 300 km of borderline with China. It has been trading with Chinese localities via several pairs of border gates.
