Speaking at a conference of leaders of Nordic businesses that are investing in Vietnam, Deputy Prime Minister Tran Luu Quang expressed his hope that big corporations and companies from the Nordic region, with their experience, strengths, and reputation, will continue to support and accompany the Vietnamese Government and enterprises. He expected that they will have breakthrough, creative, modern solutions, seize opportunities, and expand investment cooperation in areas where both sides have strengths and potential.

He also hoped that Nordic investors will help the Vietnamese Government to continue perfecting institutions, mechanisms, and policies to encourage businesses to apply sustainable business models, develop new industries, as well as digital, green, and circular economy.
