Vietnam Trade Promotion Agency under the Ministry of Industry and Trade and the Foreign Investment Agency under the Ministry of Planning and Investment jointly organized the seminar.
EuroCham Executive Director Almut Roessner said that Vietnam and the European Union signed a free trade agreement, the EVFTA, which will takes effect in 2018.
The agreement will bring more opportunities to access to state-of-the –art technologies and machines as well as improve labor skills resulting in creating more employment.
Attracting foreign investment not only helps local firms in transferring technology but also build up and establish localities to provide materials.
