VN, Romania to boost two-way trade

Viet Nam and Romania should foster bilateral relations in potential sectors and accelerate exchanges of high level delegations and business communities in order to draw up new practical measures to increase future two-way trade.

Deputy Prime Minister Trinh Dinh Dung delivered this statement during the Viet Nam – Romania Business Forum held yesterday in the capital.

Despite witnessing significant increases over past years, trade ties between Viet Nam and Romania still lagged behind their potential and expectation from the two nations, he said.

In his speech at the forum, Prime Minister of Romania Dacian Ciolos outlined oil and gas, shipping, technology, agriculture and tourism as promising sectors for bilateral co-operation in the time to come.

Hoang Quang Phong, vice chairman of Viet Nam Chamber of Commerce and Industry (VCCI) blamed the unsatisfactory trade relations on inadequate information about each nation’s enterprises, significant transport costs due to geographic distance as well as on difficulties in customs and payment which firms from the two nations encounter.

The two countries were enjoying huge opportunities to effectively exploit each other’s potential in order to speed up the forging of commercial ties, Ph?ng told the conference.

Meanwhile, deputy head of the Ministry of Industry and Trade’s European Market Department Nguyen Kh?nh Ngoc called on Romanian support in developing domestic suppliers of parts. For example, Romania could assist Vi?t Nam in establishing centres on supplying components in machinery engineering, and electronics, as well as providing raw materials in textile and garment sector.

Viet Nam’s trade with Romania reached US$176 million in 2015, with more than $100 million from Vietnamese exports, according to statistics from the General Department of Customs.

The trade reached $57.4 million in the past five months of this year, up 5.6 per cent year-on-year. Of the sum, Viet Nam exported $38.7 worth of goods to Romania including coffee, seafood, clothing, footwear, and electronics products while it spent $18.7 million in importing wheat flour, machines and chemicals from the partner.

As of April, Romania had three projects, worth $2.1 million, in Viet Nam. In return, Viet Nam ranked 70th among foreign investors in Romania with 257 projects capitalised at $4.4 million.

This year in Thailand-what next?

It is commonplace in journalism to write two types of articles at the transition point between the year that has passed and the New Year. As this writer qualifies as an “old hand” in observing Thailand with a track record dating back 14 years, it is time take a shot at what may unfold in Thailand in 2011.

The first issue that can’t be answered is the health of Thailand’s beloved King Bhumibol, who is now 83 years old. He is the world's longest reigning monarch, but elaborate birthday celebrations in December failed to mask concern over his health. More
