The EU-Vietnam Business Network (EVBN) was inaugurated in Ho Chi Minh City on November 12, serving as a bridge connecting business communities of Europe, Vietnam and ASEAN region.

Speaking at the inaugural ceremony, Antonio Tajani, Vice President of the European Commission (EC) and Commissioner for Industry and Entrepreneurship said the EVBN is also expected to help EU businesses operate effectively in Vietnam and expand to other countries in the region.

The establishment of the EVBN is within the framework of a project on helping business players from the European Union (EU) to seek investment opportunities in Vietnam , which is a joint effort by the EU Delegation to Vietnam and the French Chamber of Commerce and Industry in Vietnam.
