The event saw the participation of leaders of some ministries, agencies and trade offices at 63 countries and territories and representatives of businesses. 

Speaking at the conference, the PM hailed contributions of the industry and trade sector and offices to the development of the nation, especially the two-way trade value of US$425 billion in 2017 and the export turnover of US$214 billion.  

The Government leader required overseas trade offices to promptly provide information and recommendations on markets, enhance trade promotion and investment of businesses and localities to help Vietnamese commodities to enter into other nations as well as closely cooperate with local agencies to address arising issues. 

He suggested trade offices propose measures to take the advantages of Free Trade Agreements, encourage local businesses to cooperate with Vietnamese partners and join hands with local agencies to tackle and limit trade disputes.  

PM Phuc also highlighted the spirit of disciplines in activities of trade offices overseas, requesting ministries, agencies, localities and businesses to enhance administrative procedure reform and create favorable conditions for production and exports.
