Two hundred Argentine enterprises will visit Vietnam next week, according to a government official from Argentina.

Carlos Bianco, Argentine undersecretary for Investment Development and Trade Promotion, told local press on Oct. 26 that the visit will be headed by the country's foreign trade secretary, national integration secretary, commerce secretary, and undersecretary for investment development and trade promotion.

"Company representatives are scheduled to arrive in HCM City on October 28, and will meet Vietnamese partners on October 29-30," he said.

Visiting businesses are involved in various industries, including food and beverages, automobiles, machinery and construction equipment, agriculture, garments and textiles, and pharmaceuticals.

Bianco said the delegation chose Vietnam because of its high growth rate and dynamic economy.

He also expected many long-term cooperation agreements to be signed between Vietnamese and Argentine partners during the visit next week.

More than 380 Vietnamese businesses have registered to take part in business-to-business meetings during the delegation's visit next week.
