Hanoi (VNA) – Vietnamese and French businesspeople attended a get-together in Hanoi on November 10 on the occasion of Vietnam Entrepreneurs’ Day (October 13) and Vietnam Corporate Culture Day (November 10).

Speaking at the event, Vice Chairman of the Central Committee of Vietnam-France Friendship and Cooperation Association Nguyen Lan Trung said the event will warm up a seminar on bilateral economic and trade ties next year.

The association wishes that French and Vietnamese firms operating in each country would become a strong and united community to boost two-way trade, he said.

French Deputy Ambassador to Vietnam Olivier Sigaud said the free trade agreement between Vietnam and the European Union, which will be ratified and take effect in the near future, will make important contributions to promoting bilateral ties.

As Vietnam and France will celebrate the 45th founding anniversary of diplomatic ties and the fifth anniversary of strategic partnership next year, a number of high-level mutual visits will be scheduled with an aim to step up trade activities.-VNA
