Strengthening connection between Italian and Vietnamese business communities

VOV.VN - Fulvio Albano , president of the Italy-Vietnam Chamber of Commerce in Turin (CCIV), revealed some of CCIV's main orientations and goals moving forward, all of which aim to enhance connectivity and interaction between firms of both nations moving forward.

In a recent exchange held with the media, the CCIV said regarding activities in the year ahead, CCIV will work closely alongside the Vietnamese Embassy in Italy and the Honorary Consulate of Vietnam in Turin to launch a wide range of activities which aim to promote economic co-operation, trade, and services, of which tourism represents one of the priority areas. This comes in the context that both Italy and Vietnam are currently allowing related services to gradually reopen.

Furthermore, CCIV has decided to launch the opening of a representative office in Ho Chi Minh City next June as it seeks to expand its ability to provide necessary assistance to businesses of both countries in the process of gaining potential partners and maintaining operations in each other's markets.

In the immediate future, CCIV has devised plans to organise a series of bilateral events in Turin, including arranging working visits between a delegation of the Vietnamese Embassy with authorities of Turin and the Piedmont region. This is in addition to introducing the potential of investment and business in the Vietnamese market to Italian businesses.

Originally established in 1996, CCIV was one of the first bilateral chambers set up in Italy, with the recognition of the Ministry of International Trade, now the Italian Ministry of Economic Development, and is currently a member of the union of chambers of commerce (Unioncamere) of Italy.

With its head office based in Turin, a major city in the north of Italy which is twinned with Ho Chi Minh City, CCIV not only focuses on promoting economic and trade co-operation, but also contributes to strengthening the traditional ties between the two countries through joint measures, making use of its rich network of friendship organisations in this city.
