Can Tho (VNA) - Many Danish enterprises wish to seek information and investment opportunities in Vietnam as the EU-Vietnam Free Trade Agreement (EVFTA) is set to take effect, Troels Jakobsen, Commercial Counsellor at the Embassy of Denmark in Vietnam, said on July 2.

He made the statement during a working session with authorities of the Mekong Delta city of Can Tho, which is among eight localities the Danish Embassy plans to pay fact-finding trips to.  

He said Danish businesses are looking for investment opportunities in green growth, renewable energy, health, education, the environment, food safety, and logistics, among others.
