Prague​ (VNA) – National Assembly Chairwoman Nguyen Thi Kim Ngan received in Prague on April 12 (local time) leaders of the Czech Chamber of Economy, Czech Top 100 Association and a beer firm as part of her four-day visit to the European country.

During the reception, the Chairwoman expressed her pleasure to meet with leaders of Czech association, hoping that Czech associations will encourage businesses to invest and do business in Vietnam.

She briefed participants on Vietnam’s legal system toward international integration as well as the country’s favourable position for investors to expand their operation to the region.

Vietnam is willing to serve as a bridge for Czech businesses to expand to other markets in Southeast Asia and Asia, she affirmed.

Echoing Ngan’s share on the two countries’ economic and trade relationship which does not match the potential, Vice President of the Czech Chamber of Economy Borivoj Minar said Czech associations want to improve the matter.

He stressed many Czech firms and associations visited and sought opportunities for investment and business in Vietnam in recent times.

According to Minar, the Czech Republic is an open market and his chamber is willing to provide support to bring Vietnamese commodities to the European market.

Many Czech goods, including manufacturing products and food, are present in Vietnam, he said, hoping for more Czech products in the Southeast Asian market in the time ahead.

Vietnam is attractive to Czech firms, he said, adding that Czech businesses are ready to cooperate and transfer technology to produce goods that are the Czech Republic’s strength such as manufacturing industry and farm produce preservation.

Through Vietnam, Czech enterprises wish to expand to other markets in the region, he said.-VNA
