Perth (VNA) – Vietnam’s Consulate General in Perth and the West
Australian Vietnam Business Council (WAVBC) on July 13 held a workshop to
promote multifaceted cooperation between Vietnam and the Western Australian
State, especially in the field of business.

Consul General Phung The Long said Vietnam is the 16th trade partner, the 15th
exporter, and the third biggest farm produce importer of the State, adding that
the two sides should actively explore and optimise their huge cooperation
potential.

Vo Hong Duc, Director at Australia’s national energy supervision committee and
head of the business and economic research group at the Ho Chi Minh City Open
University, highlighted potential cooperative fields such as education,
agriculture and consultancy.

He also pointed to difficulties that Western Australian companies should
thoroughly study before building business and investment plans in Vietnam.

He introduced that Vietnam has a population of over 90 million people with new
emerging economic zones in major cities like Hai Phong, Da Nang, Nha Trang and
Can Tho, which are potential destinations for Western Australian firms.

Vo The Truyen from Australia’s vegetable growers association said Vietnam and
Australia are big suppliers of farm produce, especially fruits, therefore, the
two sides could shake hands in this sphere.

He
noted that companies and farms in the Western Australian State have a lot of
advantages and experience in preserving, packaging and post-harvest
technologies and cultivation techniques, which could be transferred to
Vietnamese farmers

Bruno Delfante, Manager Business Migration Centre under the Small Business
Development Corporation of Australia, updated information on the policy of
attracting business immigration of the Australian government for Vietnamese
businesses.

Consul General Long pledged to accompany and support Western Australian and
Vietnamese entrepreneurs with regularly provision of information.

With
the participation of over 70 business representatives, the workshop is expected
to create positive changes in the relations between Vietnam and the Western
Australian State.-VNA
