SVEF Chairman Philipp Rösler said the forum’s target is to create a platform that not only helps improve mutual understanding but also promotes deep interactions and innovation partnership between Vietnam and Switzerland. It is not only a venue for individuals and businesses of the two countries to gather but also a place to incubate ideas, collaboration and transformational projects, thereby helping to bring mutual benefits to the two countries, he added.

Addressing the launching ceremony, Vietnamese Ambassador to Switzerland Phung The Long lauded the significance of the event and expressed his hope that there will be more effective activities to unlock the potential of the two economies.

With the support of relevant governmental agencies, regional and city officials, as well as the embassies of the two countries, the SVEF will organise annual events, thus cultivating success for bilateral economic cooperation, the diplomat said./.
