Hanoi (VNA) – The first industrial exhibition EXPO Russia-Vietnam 2015 and the Vietnam-Russia Business Forum will take place in Hanoi this month, said the Vietnam Chamber of Commerce and Industry (VCCI) on December 10.

The two events will be organised by Russian-based Zarubezh-Expo at Melia Hotel, featuring approximately 120 enterprises from Russia.

The EXPO Russia-Vietnam 2015, held from December 14-16, will showcase latest technologies in various fields, including energy, mechanical engineering, transport infrastructure, telecommunication and communications, mining, chemistry, medicine and agriculture, said Zarubezh-Expo Chairman David Vartanov.

The Vietnam-Russia Business Forum on December 14 will focus its discussions on economic cooperation within the framework of the Free Trade Agreement (FTA) between Vietnam and the Eurasian Economic Union (EAEU).

Nguyen Tuan Hai, Deputy Director of the VCCI International Relations Department, said the forum would be a good chance for businesses of both sides to seek investment and partnership opportunities.

Attending Vietnamese firms will be updated on information and basic principles of the Vietnam-EAEU FTA, he added.

Vietnam signed a FTA with the EAEU, including Russia, Kazakhstan, Belarus, Armenia and Kyrgyzstan, last May.-VNA
