The Finnish Government has funded a Vietnam Chamber of Commerce and Industry (VCCI)’s project assisting Vietnamese businesses to export seafood and agricultural products to the country and other markets in Northern Europe.

The announcement has been made at a seminar hosted by VCCI recently.
Stating at the seminar, representative of Finnsea Consulting Company said that Finland with population of only five million people, is considered as a gateway to enter other markets in the Northern Europe such as Norway, Sweden, Demark, Estonia, Latvia and Litva, and Russia.
However, Vietnamese enterprises have not approached this market, yet. Almost Vietnamese seafood products have been indirectly exported to Finland via another country.
VCCI project will help Vietnamese companies to export domestic products to the Northern Europe market and seek suitable foreign partners.
