The Ambassador also shared information about the Netherlands, one of the countries with strong economic potential in Europe and the world; a country that develops with creativity, not only thanks to natural resources.

The Ambassador affirmed that the two countries have a long-standing trade relationship, and the fact that more and more Dutch enterprises are operating and developing in Vietnam such as De Heus, Freisland Campina, Heinekein, Deamen and Nedspices proves that the two sides have been in need of each other.

Over the past years, Ha Nam has always seen an economic growth rate of over 10%, and maintained a place in Vietnam’s top 15 provinces in terms of foreign direct investment (FDI) attraction. With industry as the focus for socio-economic development of the province, as a driving force to promote the development of trade and tourism services, Mr. Huy wished and called on Dutch investors to continue to expand investment in high-tech agricultural production, supporting industries, logistics and tourism.

For her part, Ms. Nga Dang, DBAV Vice President, introduced the Netherlands - Vietnam Business Association, emphasizing that DBAV is the bridge to bring European businesses to the Vietnamese market and vice versa.
