– The Canadian Northstar group, which specialises in providing financial services for small- and medium-sized enterprises, wants to support firms in the southern province of Binh Phuoc.

President and Chief Executive Officer of Northstar Trade Finance Inc, Scott Shepherd, made the remark at a meeting with local authorities last week.

He said the Canadian group has 24 years of experience in the field and it hopes to exchange and cooperate with Vietnamese firms given the two countries are implementing new-generation free trade agreements.

The company will support Vietnamese businesses in importing spare parts and machines from developed countries to serve domestic production, he added.

Vice Secretary of the provincial Party's Committee, Le Van Chau, welcomed the group's investment in Vietnam and particularly in Binh Phuoc, and confirmed that local authorities will create the best conditions for foreign enterprises and investors, including those from Canada, to run business in the province.-VNA
