Vietnam wants French investment
Vietnam expects France, a major partner in trade, investment and development co-operation, to boost investment on the back of its gradual recovery from the global economic crisis, said Ambassador to France Le Kinh Tai.
The diplomat attended a " Vietnam Day" event held in Lyon, France, on Thursday which was held with the aim of introducing business-people from Lyon and the Rhone-Alpes region to potential cooperation opportunities in Viet nam.
The event brought together 100 representatives from the region's business circle as well as members of the overseas Vietnamese community.
Ambassador Tai said the Public-Private Partnership (PPP) model was brought up during the event showing there were many opportunities for French and Vietnamese businesses to co-operate in fields such as safe water supply, environmental protection, waste treatment, urban transportation and infrastructure.
He affirmed that commitments by French businesses to co-operate with Viet Nam had worked to boost economic co-operation between the two countries and also helped the European country gain access to Southeast Asia.
President of the France-Viet Nam Friendship Association Honorary Senator Helene Luc praised Vietnam's growing position in regional and international arenas, and expressed her hope that Vietnam would become a destination with many cooperation opportunities for those from the Rhone-Alpes region.
