Hanoi (VNA) – Prime Minister Nguyen Xuan Phuc hosted a reception for Chairman of the Thai Charoen Corporation (TCC) Charoen Sirivadhanabhakdi in Hanoi on July 8.

Congratulating the Thai group on its successful business activities in Vietnam, the PM hailed the TCC’s win-win business philosophy and called on the group to increase its investment in Vietnam.

He said businesses of both countries play an important role in bringing bilateral trade to 20 billion USD by 2020.

PM Phuc suggested TCC to continue exporting Vietnamese goods to Thailand via its retail networks in Vietnam and Thailand following its shipment of 100 tonnes of Vietnam’s dragon fruit to Thailand for the first time.

Vietnam commits itself to creating a favourable business environment for foreign investors, including those from Thailand, the PM said.

The Thai business executive said he hopes the Vietnamese Government will continue to facilitate the group’s operation in Vietnam.

He said Vietnam is a key market of the TCC, and the group is undertaking procedures for permission to export Vietnamese goods to Thailand and other regional countries, such as orange, sweet potato, lime and rice powder.-VNA
