VGP - Vice Chairman of the People’s Committee of Ho Chi Minh City Tran Vinh Tuyen has received a French business delegation led by French Consul General to Ho Chi Minh City Vincent Floreani.

At the reception, Mr. Vincent Floreani thanked the city for its assistance given to French businesses in implementing several sub-projects of the Metro Line 1 project as well as other projects on waterways and aviation in the city.

He affirmed that transport development is an important and typical cooperation aspect of the France-Viet Nam strategic partnership.

The delegation, including leaders of 14 big French companies, showed their interest in the city’s orientation to develop the Metro system and other passenger transportation types.

In turn,  Tuyen said that France currently ranks 17th among the 92 nations and territories investing in the city, which does not match the Viet Nam-France time-honoured political and cultural relations.

Mr. Tuyen expressed his hope that the delegation’s visit will open up cooperation prospects for the two sides, especially in urban transport development.

He affirmed the city’s pledge to create favourable conditions for French companies in order to facilitate their cooperation and investment in areas of mutual concern.
