Ukraine-based Vietnamese enterprises should stay united and take new moves to adapt to the situation in their crisis-hit host country, a Vietnamese diplomat said.

Vietnamese Ambassador to Ukraine Nguyen Minh Tri was speaking at a workshop in Kiev, Ukraine on November 2 to seek ways for Ukraine-based Vietnamese enterprises’ business development.

Representatives from 30 Vietnamese enterprises from Kiev, Kharkov, Odessa, and Cherkasy were brought together to the event, which was organised by the Embassies of Vietnam in Ukraine and in Moldova, in collaboration with the Association of Vietnamese Enterprises in Ukraine.

Ambassador Tri highlighted the role of Vietnamese enterprises in connecting and boosting bilateral trade ties and investment between Vietnam and Ukraine.

He called on them to closely cooperate with local authorities and enterprises in the homeland in order to overcome the current challenging time.

Some representatives came up with the establishment of Vietnam-Ukraine joint ventures in which the Ukrainian side is represented by Vietnamese businesses located in Ukraine as a solution to maintain long-term business in the Eastern European country where the socio-economic and political crisis has yet to end.-VNA
