In New Delhi , President Sang had a meeting with leaders of the Federation of Indian Chambers of Commerce and Industry (FICCI) and 13 local groups and companies, including Fotis Health Care, SKIL Infrastructure, Bohra Industries, Aptech Ltd., which are operating or planning to invest in Vietnam .
While applauding the Indian businesses’ plans to increase investment in healthcare, infrastructure, energy and high-quality human resource development in Vietnam , President Sang said annual two-way trade of 3 billion USD remained modest as compared to the potential for cooperation between the two countries.
