New Delhi (VNA)
– Vietnamese Ambassador to India Pham Sanh Chau has suggested Vietnam and Gujarat state, and India in general, step up cooperation in such areas as farm produce, food, garments-textiles, pharmaceutical products and tourism.

Chau made the suggestion at a meeting with President of the Gujarat Chamber of Commerce and Industry (GCCI) Jamin R.Vasa on the sidelines of the 9th Vibrant Gujarat Global Summit (VGGS 2019) in Ahmedabad city on January 18.

The ambassador called on the two sides to help their businesses participate in trade fairs of each other, stressing that the enhanced coordination between the Vietnamese Embassy and the GCCI would contribute to promoting bilateral trade and investment ties.

Jamin R.Vasa committed to organising trips for Gujarat enterprises to Vietnam in April or May this year to explore investment and business cooperation opportunities in the Southeast Asian nation.

VGGS was first held in 2003 to re-establish Gujarat as a preferred investment destination within India. Today, the biennial summit has evolved into a platform for brainstorming on agendas of global socio-economic development, in addition to being a facilitator for knowledge sharing and forging effective partnerships.

More than 70,000 delegates have registered for this year’s event, including over 2,100 foreigners.–VNA
