More than 200 business leaders attended a France-Vietnam Business Forum on September 7 in Ho Chi Minh City focused on increasing trade and investment between the two nations.

The Forum, timed to coincide with the visit of President François Hollande to Ho Chi Minh City on the second day of his state visit to Vietnam, was organized by the French Chamber of Commerce. 

Speaking at the event, Nicolas Du Pasquier, director of the Chamber, said the French business community is eager to increase its commercial connection to the Vietnam economy.

He said there are ample opportunities in infrastructure, power and energy, agriculture, consumer goods, health care, and information communication technology, but it will take a lot of hard work to develop solutions for greater commercial trade and investment.

Vietnam markets hold many untapped opportunities for French investors and companies – and capitalizing on them would create jobs and improve lives both for citizens of France and Vietnam.

The ultimate goal, he said, is to foster strong ties between France and Vietnam that will drive greater economic growth and lift earnings of businesses and individuals in both nations.
