Vietnam, France to promote economic ties

(VOVworld) – Economic and trade ties between Vietnam and France have borne fruit but haven’t tapped the potential created by their strategic partnership, which was signed last September.

The remark was made at a roundtable in Paris last Sunday to review bilateral economic ties in 2014 and cooperation prospects for 2015.

Bruno Rigal of France’s Natixis Bank said Vietnam’s economy is forecast to recover strongly thanks to its government’s efforts to improve the business climate, lure investment, and expand the export market, which will create opportunities for French businesses.

According to Jacques Faurvel of the Casino Group, one of France’s leading retailers and distributors and an investor in the Big C supermarket chain in Vietnam, the Casino Group has always received strong support from local authorities while operating in Vietnam. He said Casino’s success shows that other foreign investors can find opportunities in Vietnam.
