Director of the Vietnam Trade Promotion Agency (Vietrade) has stated that his nation has close trade ties with many Chinese localities, including Shanghai. This city is the most populous city of China with a population of over 24 million, which makes it a trade partner of great importance.
As there is still room for Vietnam-Shanghai trade expansion, relevant agencies and enterprises of both sides should make more active moves, he suggested.
According to Vietnamese Consul General to Shanghai Ninh Thanh Cong, the two countries boast numerous advantages to tap into the existing potential for trade, particularly in fruit. Vietnam is home to a large number of tropical agricultural products and fruits meeting high technical standards and exported to many demanding markets like the EU. Besides, Shanghai and Huadong are dynamic regions of China with developed supermarket and e-commerce networks.
With the existing potential, Vietnamese and Chinese firms enjoy numerous conditions to enhance long-term cooperation, Cong told sggpnews.org.vn
