State President Nguyen Minh Triet received leaders attending the 17th ASEAN Summit and related summits, including the East Asia Summit (EAS) in Hanoi on October 30.


He confirmed Vietnam has continued to strengthen bilateral and multilateral relations with countries in the region and the world, contributing to the development of good relations between ASEAN and its partners.


Vietnam hopes ASEAN’s partners will continue cooperating and assisting the region in carrying out its goal of building a successful ASEAN community, and support the bloc’s key role in regional forums, he noted.


Earlier, President Triet welcomed the President of the Republic of Korea (RoK) Lee Myung-bak, who was attending the 17th ASEAN Summit and related summits.


He applauded the Korean President for joining the events and affirmed that the relationship between Vietnam and the RoK is developing well, and the two sides should push for high-ranking visits to reinforce trust and bilateral cooperative opportunities.


Vietnam wants Korean businesses to increase investment in infrastructure, high technology and diplomacy to strengthen the relationship between the two countries, he said.        


President Triet highly appreciated the fact that President Lee Myung-bak paid attention to and dealt with the sad situations of some Vietnamese brides in Korea, and Vietnam wants both sides to exchange ideas to build a legal framework to protect Vietnamese brides in the RoK. He emphasised that coordination to resolve the situation recently demonstrated mutual trust, sharing and understanding.


The Korean President confirmed his visit to Vietnam last year had resolved many issues and helped the two countries overcome difficulties. He said the Korean people are very sad about the unfortunate events involving Vietnamese brides. The Korean Government has added regulations concerning this issue and the Korean people also increased their awareness and now pay more attention to the situation of foreign brides.


He said at present, there are 14 countries providing labourers to the RoK and Vietnam has the largest number, Korean businesses always want to use Vietnamese labourers because they are industrious and highly-skilled. He also said he believed that, as an intelligent and hard-working country, Vietnam will soon become one of the strongest in the South East Asian region.        


President Lee Myung-buk invited President Triet to visit the RoK and said he hopes the two countries will cooperate in international forums.


On the occasion, the Korean President informed the Vietnamese President that the RoK had finished procedures to prepare for importing dragon fruit, one of Korea’s favourite fruits, from Vietnam.

Trade exchange between Vietnamese and Indian garment businesses held

Trade exchange between Vietnamese and Indian garment businesses held


QĐND – Tuesday, June 29, 2010, 20:45 (GMT+7)

An Indian delegation including 16 leading groups and corporations in the field of garments and textiles held a trade exchange to learn about the market and seek cooperation opportunities with Vietnamese counterparts in Hanoi on June 29.


Indian businesses producing garment input materials committed to provide assistance with technology to Vietnamese enterprises and supply high-quality materials for this market, said V.S Velayutham, Chairman of the Cotton Textiles Export Promotion Council of India (Texprocil).


According to Nguyen Thi Hong Tin, Director of Market Research & Promotion Department of the Vietnam National Textile and Garment Group (Vinatex), Vietnam’s garment exports can look forward to a year of good growth. In the first six months it reached US$4.65 billion and it’s on track to achieve the goal of US$10.5 billion by the end of this year.


However, the garment industry’s development is still encountering many difficulties because most source materials must be imported. To address this, Vietnamese businesses need to step up cooperation with Indian businesses to better serve production in the future, Mrs. Tin noted.    


In recent years, India’s garment exports to Vietnam have steadily risen. In 2008, India exported about US$80 million of cotton cloth and US$57 million of garment input materials to Vietnam.  However, at a time when Vietnam has become one of the top ten biggest garment exporting countries in the world, that number falls short of its potential, Mr. Velayutham added.


The leader of Texprocil also expressed the hope that strategic cooperation between Vietnamese importers and Indian companies would be strengthened through trade exchanges, exhibitions and fairs, especially through Vietnamese participation in the India International Garment Fair in February, 2011.
