Berlin forum attracts overseas Vietnamese businessmen
A Vietnam Business Forum in Europe, the fourth of its kind so far, was organised in the German capital city of Berlin from September 11-13, reported VNBusinessNews.com.
The forum, entitled “Challenges and opportunities for Vietnamese businesses in Europe,” brought together more than 200 Vietnamese entrepreneurs from 10 European nations and a number of delegations from the home country.
This year’s forum took place at a time when European countries are coping with the adverse impacts of the global financial crisis. It served as a venue for overseas Vietnamese businesspeople to share experiences in an effort to weather difficulties and step up business and investment both in the resident countries and in the home land.
Deputy Minister of Industry and Trade Nguyen Thanh Bien spoke highly of the great progress made by the Association of Vietnamese Businesses in Europe (AVBE) in recent years, as well as its endeavours to assist and put forth directions for investment and business activities of Vietnamese companies amid the world economic crisis.
Vietnamese Ambassador to Germany Do Hoa Binh said the forum was one of the embassy’s major activities in the lead up to the 35th anniversary of the establishment of Vietnam-Germany diplomatic ties in 2010.
At the forum, which was held annually in European countries, the AVBE was renamed the Union of Vietnamese Businesses Associations in Europe.
