VIETNAM/INVESTMENT
British businesses eyes opportunities

LONDON, Dec 10 Asia Pulse - More than 50 Vietnamese and British businesses attended a trade and investment seminar in London on December 6 to inquire into investment opportunities in areas such as energy, mining, finance, telecom services, garment and furniture.

Speaking at the seminar, Vietnamese Deputy Minister of Industry and Commerce Nguyen Cam Tu briefed participants of Viet Nam's economic situation, potential and development orientation. He expressed his hope for strong cooperation between businesses of the two countries.

British investors who have done business in Viet Nam spoke of their experiences and necessary advises about the Vietnamese market.

Stephen Brown, former CEO of the U.K. Trade and Investment, called on British businesses to look for opportunities in Viet Nam, a country with many advantages for increased competitive edge.

A number of businesses found their potential partners at the seminar, which was co-organised by the Vietnamese Ministry of Industry and Trade and the Vietnamese Embassy in the U.K.

Britain is Viet Nam's most important partner from the EU and is among Viet Nam's top ten export markets. The two-way trade value is estimated to exceed US$1 billion this year.
