VIETNAM-FINLAND/TIES
Finnish president lauds growth of bilateral ties

Finnish President Tarja Halonen, during her recent visit to Vietnam, said the country’s rapid economic growth provided attractive environment for investors, Vietnam News Agency reported.

At a conference in Ha Noi Saturday, the President called Vietnam an important trade partner of Finland, adding that the conference will strengthen bilateral ties between the two nations while uncovering new business opportunities.

The President led a 16-member delegation made up of high-ranking representatives from well-known companies such as Kone, Wartsila, Nokia and Metso.

Trade experts said bilateral co-operations between Finland and Vietnam, especially in trade and investment, has great potential for growth.

Currently, there are five investment projects in Vietnam bankrolled by enterprises from the Scandinavian country. Two-way trade revenue was modest last year at $170 million, $92.5 million of which came from Vietnamese exports such as seafood, agricultural products, wood products, apparel and electronics.
