Vietnam, Moscow ramps up investment projects

Moscow, July 29 (VNA) – Vietnamese Ambassador to Russia Nguyen Thanh Son hosted a reception at the embassy on July 28 for Governor of the Moscow region Andrey Vorobyev to discuss bilateral cooperation prospects between Vietnam and Moscow.

In his opening remarks, Ambassador Son said Vietnam treasures the comprehensive strategic partnership with Russia and Moscow remains Vietnam’s key focus region.

He believed the cooperation agreement between Ho Chi Minh City and Moscow would lay a solid foundation to further expand ties between Vietnam and Moscow. The agreement was inked during State President Truong Tan Sang’s visit to Russia in May to attend the 70th anniversary celebrations since the victory over Nazi Germany.

An increasing number of Vietnamese enterprises are seeking business opportunities in Moscow, including the TH Group, a milk producer, which invested 2 billion USD in an agricultural project in Moscow, Son added.

For his part, Vorobyev pledged to create favourable conditions for Vietnamese investors in Moscow and welcomed projects like those of the TH Group with the use of advanced technology in milk production.

He expressed his intent to make a visit to Vietnam at the invitation of State President Truong Tan Sang and Chairman of the Ho Chi Minh City People’s Committee Le Hoang Quan.

Earlier, the Moscow region’s authorities held a talk with Ambassador Nguyen Thanh Son and representatives from the TH Group and the North Asia Commercial Bank in early July to discuss cooperation opportunities and the implementation of their projects in Moscow.
