At the meeting, Peter hailed the effective activities of Vietnam, through the Vietnam Chamber of Commerce and Industry (VCCI) within the CACCI framework, and stressed that CACCI will continue provide a platform among member economies and link businesses, including Vietnamese ones to promote cooperation and investment opportunities.
He used the occasion to suggest Vietnam organise a CACCI Conference in a near future so that member economies could learn about investment policies and business environment of the country.
CACCI members such as chambers of Commerce and Industry from Pakistan, Iran, and Hong Kong (China) highlighted prospects for international cooperation and investment promotion with Vietnam. They pledged utmost to encourage businesses to explore opportunities in potential fields of agriculture, pharmaceuticals, and processing and manufacturing.
For his part, Deputy Minister Phuong stated that CACCI Conference would help Vietnam seek more chance in collaboration with CACCI and increase regional business interaction.
Vietnam wants to draw more investment in digital transformation, digital economy, green economy, and hydrogen projects with spillover effects and helping Vietnamese enterprises participate in the global value chain, in spirit of sincerity, trust, and harmonised benefits and shared risks, he continued.
The Ministry of Planning and Investment hopes to collect opinions from CACCI, thereby proposing solutions to further promote economic and trade activities among member countries.
Established in 1996, CACCI is a network of national chambers of commerce and industry from 28 countries or independent economies, including VCCI. Vietnam actively contributes to CACCI’s activities since joining in 1990, and hosted two CACCI Conferences in 1993 and 2000./.
