HCM City (VNA) – Romanian businesses want to invest in Ho Chi Minh City, particularly in transport infrastructure and urban development, said Vlad Vasiliu, Romanian State Secretary of the Ministry of Economy, Trade and Business Environment.

He made the statement when leading a senior delegation to meet with Tran Vinh Tuyen, Vice Chairman of the HCM City People’s Committee, in the southern city on June 15.

The State Secretary said he highly values the role that the southern hub plays in the relations between Vietnam and Romania.

He noted that the two countries’ traditional relationship is progressing, laying the foundations for bilateral trade partnerships.

Room for further engagement remains extensive in the future, he said.

For his part, Tuyen welcomed the visiting Romanian delegates, who are in Vietnam to attend a session of the Vietnam-Romania intergovernmental committee.

He said the delegation gathers representatives from ministries and leading companies in trade, agriculture, telecommunication and energy, which also are sectors within which HCM City is calling for investment.

He said cooperation between Romania and HCM City still falls short of its potential, adding that the city is willing to create favourable conditions for Romanian investors.-VNA
