The Chairman made the statement during a working session hosted for Vice President of the Nordic Chamber of Commerce (NordCham) in Vietnam Quist Thomasen on April 16, reported VNA.

Anh affirmed that Hanoi welcomes Nordic companies to come and learn about its investment environment and business opportunities, and hopes for their greater engagement in investment, trade, tourism, smart city and e-government building, green technology, energy, sustainable development, technology transfer, and human resources training.

The Vietnamese capital is willing to establish and expand cooperation with the capitals of Nordic countries so as to contribute to deepening the traditional relations between the two sides, he said.

The municipal People’s Committee will direct relevant departments to work with Nordic enterprises that want to seek cooperation opportunities in Vietnam, and discuss with Nordic cities about cooperation possibilities towards the signing of related agreements.

Thomasen said that Nordic companies are willing to share their experience to help Hanoi with green city development and to achieve effective energy use.

He proposed Hanoi put in place specific mechanisms to facilitate connections between enterprises and cooperation between the city and Nordic companies.

He also expressed a hope that NordCham Vietnam will have a chance to work with relevant offices in Hanoi to address problems relating to work permits for businesses’ staff.

Almost USD 5 billion worth of Vietnamese goods exported to the EU has benefited from preferential tariffs under the EU-Vietnam Free Trade Agreement (EVFTA), according to the Ministry of Industry and Trade (MoIT).

The MoIT noted from August 1, 2020, when the EVFTA took effect, to April 4 this year, authorised agencies and organisations in Vietnam granted about 127,300 sets of the certificate of origin form EUR 1 for nearly USD 4.8 billion of exports to the 27 EU countries.

The Nordic Region consists of Denmark, Norway, Sweden, Finland, and Iceland, as well as the Faroe Islands, Greenland, and Åland./.
