On the occasion, he also highlighted development of Vietnam- Chile cooperation relations in recent time. The bilateral trade turnover between Vietnam and China reached US$ 1.28 billion, including Vietnam’s import and export turnover surged over US$ 716 million.
Currently, Vietnam is the tenth largest market, the second biggest market in the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) after Thailand, and the fifth largest market in Asia for Chile.
Mr. Nguyen Minh Anh also emphasized the tendency of young Chilean businessmen to seek opportunities for business cooperation associated with visiting the Southeast Asia, including Vietnam.
The representative of Chile Foreign Affair affirmed that the exchange of goods between the two countries is complementary as the Free Trade Agreement (FTA) officially took effect early 2014 which had significantly contributed to strengthen trade exchange.
Vietnam could become the gateway for Chilean goods to enter the ASEAN market, while Chile is the bridge for Vietnamese products to Latin American countries.
The talks attracted the participation of the South American enterprises in the fields of aquatic products, food processing, agriculture, energy technology, cosmetics and consultancy.
