The conference was organized by the Vietnam Embassy in India's Commercial Affair in collaboration with the Associated Chambers of Commerce and Industry of India (ASSOCHAM) and the Investment and Trade Promotion Centre of Ho Chi Minh City (ITPC) at 3 points of Hanoi - New Delhi - Ho Chi Minh City on June 12.

At the event, Vietnam Ambassador Chau said the deal was officially ratified by the Vietnam National Assembly at its ninth session. He said that the garment-textile industry will be one of the five sectors that have opportunities to increase exports to the EU, while calling on Indian companies to boost investment and establish plants in Vietnam. India is supposed a strong partner in ithe fields of garment and textiles. With a highly developed fiber and textile industry, India can produce almost all kinds of textile materials and accessories and is currently among the top 3 countries supplying textiles and garments in the world. While Vietnam wants to boost production and export, India can be a source of quality fabrics and yarns for Vietnam, helping to bridge the gap and even enhance Vietnam's competitiveness in the international market. This is an open market that businesses in the field of yarn and textile need to exploit.
