Czech companies invest in aviation, healthcare in Vietnam

SMS-Slovak Medical Services and Progress Trading, the two companies from the Czech Republic, have just announced new investment projects in Vietnam.

Progress Trading will supply aircraft spare parts made in Russia and the republics of the former Soviet Union.

Vestrovsky Bohuslave, a representative of Progress trading, said his company eyes Vietnam as a potential market and it plans to manufacture aircraft and run training courses for Vietnamese pilots and technical staff.  

Established in 2000, Progess Trading specializes in manufacturing small aircraft and helicopters for civil services.

Meanwhile, SMS-Slovak Medical Services will provide medical supplies for orthopaedics and primary health care.

SMS representatives will make a fact-finding tour of big Vietnamese hospitals to explore their needs.
