– The southern province of Binh Duong held a conference to promote the local investment opportunities in Italy on May 30, aiming to secure future partnerships with the host country’s Campania region.

Speaking at the event, Vietnamese Ambassador to Italy Cao Chinh Thien stressed that it’s time for business cooperation as the two countries’ relations are thriving.

Vietnam and Italy regard economic collaboration as a pillar of bilateral ties, he noted, adding that partnerships formed between Vietnamese provinces and Italian regions will contribute to the realisation of the two governments’ commitments.

Vice Chairman of the Binh Duong People’s Committee Mai Hung Dung said his province is among fastest growing localities in Vietnam and local authorities always attach importance to the success of investors.

He affirmed Binh Duong welcomes Italian investors, especially those from Campania region, to study the local market, which could serve as a gateway to regional markets.

Earlier, a trade promotion delegation from Binh Duong led by Dung had a working session with Campania leaders.

The two sides agreed to study the signing of a cooperation pact with specific roadmaps for partnerships in terms of investment, production, culture, and education.

Home to 6 million people, Campania is the biggest economic hub in southern Italy. It has strength in services, tourism, garment, mechanics and shipbuilding.-VNA
