Canada is a potential market for Vietnamese products. Two-way trade has experienced sustainable growth in the past few years with trade balance favouring the Southeast Asian nation.
Two-way trade is expected to approximately reach USD3 billion in 2015.
Vietnam is amongst the 25 countries to benefit from support programmes for accessing the Canadian market and it is also one of the six key target countries prioritised in Canada’s education cooperation./.
