Speaking at the event, the State President affirmed that Viet Nam always attaches importance to boosting the traditional relationship and cooperation with Bangladesh, and is willing to share experience in the fields of its strength. 

He emphasized that Viet Nam encourages investment in Bangladesh, especially in the areas with good potential for bilateral cooperation like telecoms, information technology, agriculture, food processing, garment, oil and gas, consumer goods production, infrastructure development, and services.

Viet Nam highly values the potential and opportunities for investment partnership in Bangladesh, asking authorized agencies of the country to further support and create optimal conditions for Vietnamese firms to access Bangladesh’s market, he asserted. 

Bangladeshi enterprises are also welcomed to invest in Viet Nam, he noted, voicing his belief that with the dynamism of the countries’ businesses, bilateral trade will surpass US$1 billion this year and US$2 billion in 2020.

Viet Nam will create favorable conditions for the business circles in both countries to partner in investment and business in an effective and long-term manner for the sake of each country’s sustainable development, the State President said.

The Viet Nam-Bangladesh Business Forum was jointly hosted by the Vietnamese Ministry of Planning and Investment and the Federation of Bangladesh Chamber of Commerce and Industry (FBCCI). It attracted the participation of 300 business representatives from the two sides. 

Earlier, State President Tran Dai Quang hosted a reception for a delegation from the Bangladesh-Viet Nam Council for Commerce and Industries (BVCCI).

He called on the BVCCI to enhance coordination with its Vietnamese partners to improve the framework for trade partnership and boost the trade of commodities of each country’s strength and demands. 

On the afternoon of March 6 (local time), the Vietnamese President left Dhaka, concluding successfully his three-day State visit to Bangladesh at the invitation of President Abdul Hamid.
