Conference seeks ways for Italian products to enter Vietnam

Vietnamese consumption trend, potential customers and competitive capacity of Italian businesses were discussed at a conference held in Turin, the capital city of the Piedmont region in northwest Italy on November 24.

The event provided crucial information for Italian firms who are interested in the Vietnamese market and especially those are exporting agricultural products and food which are strengths of the Piedmont region.

Vietnamese Ambassador to Italy Cao Chinh Thien updated participants on the latest information about the Vietnamese market while appraised efforts made by the Italy-Vietnam Trade Chamber in promoting trade and investment between the two countries.

According to Walter Cavrenghi, General Secretary of the Italy-Vietnam Trade Chamber, a delegation of businesses from Piedmont will study and seek investment opportunities in Vietnam in March 2018.

Talking with the Vietnam News Agency’s correspondent, President of the Chamber Fulvio Albano said that his organisation will continue to sustainably enhance trade and investment between businesses from Italy and Vietnam.

On the occasion, the Vietnamese ambassador visited some agricultural production establishments in the Piedmont region.

The same day, Thien worked with leaders of the Italian Social Security Administration in Piedmont. They agreed that Vietnam and Italy can share experience in social insurance management.

He lauded the administration’s initiative to organise a meeting to popularise information about insurance’s benefits, responsibilities and regulations among Vietnamese people working and studying in the locality.
