Authorised agencies and businesses in the Red River Delta region gathered at a workshop on science and technology to promote supporting industries in the northern city of Hai Phong on May 12.

Co-organised by the Ministry of Science and Technology, the Vietnam Chamber of Commerce and Industry (VCCI) and the Hai Phong Department of Science and Technology, the event opened opportunities for enterprises in the field to seek partners and expand business links.

Participants to the event included authorised promoting agencies, regional departments of science and technology, leading enterprises in the field and over 50 businesses needing supporting products from northern localities.

A showroom displaying supporting products from 15 outstanding enterprises in the provinces of Thai Binh, Bac Ninh, Hai Duong and Quang Ninh, Hai Phong and Hanoi cities was also held at the event.

Deputy Minister Pham Cong Tac said the event aims to map out initiatives for authorised bodies and managers, giving them a clearer understanding of their role and responsibilities to support enterprises in product development.

Delegates at the event also discussed the National Technology Innovation Fund and exchanged information about equipment manufacturing required in the supporting industrial production chain.-VNA
