Vestas, the world’s biggest wind turbine manufacturer, and other Danish businesses will seek opportunities to boost cooperation with Vietnam in the fields of economics, trade and wind energy.

The businesses will accompany Danish Prime Minister Helle Thorning-Schmidt during a visit to Vietnam in early November, which will be made at the invitation of his Vietnamese counterpart Nguyen Tan Dung, Danish Ambassador to Vietnam John Nielse said at a press conference in Hanoi on October 31.

This is the first visit of a Danish Prime Minister to Vietnam, reflecting the fine development of bilateral relation. It will also be an opportunity for the two countries to strengthen multilateral cooperation in all fields.

Denmark’s Ministry of Climate and Energy and Vietnam’s Ministry of Industry and Trade will sign a cooperation agreement, under which Denmark will provide more than 14 million USD to help Vietnam ’s small- and medium-sized enterprises use energy resources effectively.

Denmark hopes that Vietnam will continue improving conditions, including infrastructure and the quality of human resources, to help Danish businesses work more effectively in the country, Ambassador John Nielse added.-VNA
