The Korean Trade and Investment Promotion Agency (Kotra) in Hanoi will organise a meeting between local firms and 10 companies from the Republic of Korea (RoK) on September 8.

The business delegation coming from Daegu city comprises specialists in several sectors such as foodstuff, home appliances, textile and garment, medical equipment and IT.

The Vietnam-Korea Free Trade Agreement, inked in May, has opened huge opportunities for enterprises from the two countries, the agency said, adding that it planned to organise more than 10 business-matching forums and three large-scale exhibitions in Hanoi this year in order to act as a bridge linking enterprises together.

According to the Ministry of Planning and Investment's Foreign Investment Agency, RoK was Vietnam's largest source of foreign investment with 4,459 projects capitalised at more than 39.15 billion USD as of June 20.-VNA
