Within the framework of the project "Promoting enterprises to directly participate in foreign distribution networks" that the Ministry of Industry and Trade of France is implementing, Vietnamese trade representative agencies in foreign countries have different approaches depending on the business customs as well as the practice in each area.

Hence, the Vietnam Trade Office in France has applied a practical approach, bringing benefits to all parties and partners. by building a 3-party cooperation model between Vietnam's Trade Representative Offices in foreign countries - Importers and Retail Distributors.
