The Vietnamese leader considered that TCC has had  business activities in Vietnam and appreciated the group for paying US$ 100 million of tax in Vietnam.
 
TCC is a famous brand name in Thailand. Thus, PM Phuc desired that TCC is a model investor for foreign ones in serious implementation of tax regulations, especially anti transfer pricing  and tax evasion.
 
PM Phuc suggested TCC to create favorable conditions for cargo, high- quality agricultural products of Vietnam which were showcased in its market systems, and support Vietnamese farmers in consumption of agricultural products.

Mr. Charoen Sirivadanabhakdi said that TCC determined to develop and expand its retail market in Thailand. Particularly, TCC bought back Big C Thailand which contributed to help TCC export large volumes of Vietnamese products into Thailand.
