On the sideline, the Consulate will also organize a tourism event with the participation of 30 tour operators and a railway seminar for Indian companies to understand more about the potential of business in this new sector of Vietnam.
The event aims to create positive vibes in India and all aspects of India. While it is true that on the political front, both countries enjoy strong friendship, in other areas like trade, investment, tourism, education & healthcare where there are enough opportunities and potential, we have to engage more.
The Indian Consulate in the last three years has succeeded in organizing three hundred events touching every sector and there is a visible positive orientation towards India and the Indian people.
The first day of the event on August 12 expects a participation of 2,000 local audience which will include 500 Indian expats, 500 Vietnamese guests (mostly importers, exporters, companies), and some international guests.
It is expected, the events will bring people from both countries to appreciate each other’s culture and develop positive feelings which will impact the two countries' overall relationship (Photo: Indian Consulate in Ho Chi Minh City)
