Mr. Phuc said the visit will also help boost cooperation in marine economy and logistics services and call on Dutch businesses to invest in Vietnam. He added the trade ties between Vietnam and the Netherlands are developing with two-way trade reaching 7 billion USD.

Vietnam not only buys Dutch goods but also export its goods to the Netherlands. We hope to receive more Dutch technology in processing and manufacturing.”
