President of the Vietnam Fatherland Front Central Committee Nguyen Thien Nhan on October 13 toured several high-profile companies in Hanoi and the northern province of Bac Giang, on the occasion of the Vietnam Entrepreneurs’ Day.

They include the Vietnam National Textile and Garment Group (Vinatex), FPT Group, Son Ha International Corporation, and GOC Food Processing Export Jsc in Bac Giang.

During the tours, Nhan expressed his pleasure at their performances over the past time, with Vinatex becoming one of the top five textile exporters globally, and FPT leading the nation in software processing and export.

The same day, he held a working session with the Young Entrepreneurs’ Association which started out 21 years ago and now groups 67 chapters across the country.
