Algiers (VNA) – Vietnamese Ambassador to Algeria Pham Quoc Tru has paid a two-day working visit to Constantine province to boost trade and investment with the third largest city of Algeria, which holds strengths in tourism, husbandry, plantation and pharmaceutical industry.
During his stay on October 16-17, he had a working session with governor of Constantine Abdessamie Saidoun, during which they discussed measures to promote bilateral cooperation in various sectors on the basis on thriving relations between the two countries.

They expressed their interest in cooperating in agriculture, tourism and labour export.

On the occasion, the Vietnamese Embassy joined hands with the Constantine Chamber of Commerce and Industry (CCCI) to organise a forum on introducing import-export cooperation and investment potential.

CCCI president Souici Larbi called Vietnamese businesses to enhance collaboration with local firms in agriculture, tourism and pharmaceutical industry.

Many Constantine enterprises said they were interested in working with Vietnamese partners in the fields, while asking the Vietnamese authorities to create favourable conditions in legal procedures so that they can study and seek investment opportunities in the Southeast Asian nation.

Highlighting sound cooperation between the two nations in the past time, Ambassador Tru stressed the Vietnamese Government and Embassy will give necessary support to Algerian businesses who want to boost cooperation and investment with Vietnamese companies in the fields of their strengths.

On October 17, Ambassador Tru and the working delegation from the Vietnamese Embassy met with several Algerian pharmaceutical businesses at the international fair and exhibition on pharmaceutical industry and cosmetics 2019 to enhance cooperation and trade exchange with the firms./.
