– A trade promotion workshop between businesswomen from Vietnam and the Republic of Korea (RoK) and an “ao dai” (Vietnamese traditional long dress) show were held in the RoK on October 20.

The events took place within the framework of a working visit by a delegation of the Vietnam Women’s Union (VWU) led by VWU Vice President Bui Thi Hoa.

It also marked the 89th anniversary of the VWU, Vietnam Women’s Day (October 20) and Vietnam Entrepreneurs’ Day (October 13).

In his opening remarks, Vietnamese Ambassador to the RoK Nguyen Vu Tu said the programme aimed to honour significant contributions of businesspeople, including female Vietnamese entrepreneurs, to Vietnam’s impressive economic growth over the past decade.

The ambassador expressed his hope for connectivity opportunities between Vietnamese and Korean women through social activities, saying Vietnamese businesswomen can learn from their Korean peers’ experience on the basis of mutual benefits.

The workshop brought together more than 200 delegates, including representatives of Korean businesses which are operating in the spheres of tourism and hotel services, farm produce, cosmetics, construction and construction materials.

Vietnamese agricultural products as well as tourism and beauty services were also introduced at the workshop, along with a traditional Korean hanbok fashion show and art performances.
