Vietnamese business forums will be held in Paris and Milan from September 26, according to the Ministry of Industry and Trade.

The event will provide a chance for Vietnamese enterprises to meet retailers from France and Italy and help them find a way to penetrate their markets.

In recent years, France and Italy have been two of Vietnam’s largest trade partners.

Vietnam exported 1.28 billion USD and 1.53 billion USD worth of goods to France and Italy in the first eight months of this year, representing year-on-year increases of 2 percent and 28 percent, respectively.-VNA
