Thailand's Kasikornbank (KBank) has opened two representative offices in Hanoi and HCM City to support trade and investment expansion of Thai companies in the country.

Through KBank's partnerships with leading local banks, market insights and business networks connecting Thai businesses with corporations in Vietnam and other ASEAN countries will also be offered.

According to KBank President Predee Daochai, Vietnam is one of the most important investment destinations for Thai and foreign investors, given the country's ample labour force that is diligent, patient, and has a positive attitude towards self-development.

While Vietnam is a great source of raw material, the country is also home to more than 90 million consumers, and is a high-growth potential market, he added.-VNA
