The Vietnamese Entrepreneurs Association in France (ABVietFrance) plans to open its representative offices in Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City this year to help with boosting Vietnam’s trade with the Europe.

The plan was unveiled by ABVietFrance President Nguyen Hai Nam at a seminar on France-Vietnam trade ties held recently in France’s Institute for the Study of Educational Entrepreneurs.

Nam said ABVietFrance has set to act as a bridge for overseas Vietnamese and French-Vietnamese businesspeople in France to seek domestic and foreign partners as well as open representative offices in Vietnam, France and other European countries.

He also informed that ABVietFrance will take part in organising a forum for Vietnamese businesspeople in Europe in Austria in September 2011 to work toward its main purpose of promoting trade exchange between Vietnam and France and the Europe.

The seminar saw the presence of Patrice Jorland, General Secretary of France-Vietnam Society and Stéphan Bunouf, Business Development Advisor of Glaizer Group, among others./.
