The Swedish ambassador to Vietnam took part in the recent opening ceremony of the eighth UMA  store, a leading furniture and home décor brand in Vietnam.

Ambassador Camillar Mellander said: “UMA represents a successful cooperation model between Swedish and Vietnamese businesses that is expected to further develop in the future.”

The products are a combination of Swedish style and Vietnamese culture, she said, adding: “Customers can access high quality products at reasonable costs.”

The new store, located inside the Big C supermarket in HCM City’s Phu Nhuan district, is a 50-50 joint venture between Vietnamese and Swedish partners.

Next week, UMA will open another store in southern Binh Duong province, raising the total number of UMA sores in Vietnam to nine.-VNA
