HCM City (VNA) – The Vietnam-UK Network (VUN) will facilitate trade and exchange between UK and Ho Chi Minh City firms, its visiting Chairman Ben Chapman told Vice Chairman of the municipal People’s Committee Tran Vinh Tuyen during a meeting on October 11.

Chapman said the VUN’s members, including hundreds of overseas Vietnamese working in many fields, wish to develop Vietnam-UK ties as well as contribute to the development of Ho Chi Minh City.

The network is willing to share experience with the southern economic hub in building a financial centre and smart urban areas, he said.

Tuyen said the city is working to build an international-standard financial centre and a smart city, and deal with arising problems such as flooding and environment pollution.

The host hoped that the VUN will encourage experienced UK investors, particularly overseas Vietnamese experts and businesspeople, to invest in the city.-VNA
