Hanoi (VNA) – The Vietnam Chamber of Commerce and Industry (VCCI) and the Korea International Trade Association (KITA) will host the Vietnam-Korea Business Forum on July 8.

Themed “Cooperation for a sustainable future,” the event will focus on information technology, electricity and renewable energy, education and smart city development.

It will be held via video teleconference and livestreamed on YouTube.

The Republic of Korea has remained Vietnam’s top investor and trade partner for years.

The RoK is the biggest investor of Vietnam, which now operates nearly 9,000 FDI projects worth a total of around 70.4 billion USD, accounting for 18.5 percent of the Southeast Asian country’s FDI inflows, as of the end of 2020. It is also Vietnam’s third largest trade partner.

The forum is expected to provide a chance for Vietnamese companies, especially small- and medium-sized enterprises, to explore and seek business opportunities in the RoK market./.
