Consult General to Hong Kong and Macao Nguyen Thi Nha said bilateral relations between Vietnam and Hong Kong have developed well in various areas, thanks to the regular exchange of visits and signing agreements over the years.
Two-way trade turnover between Vietnam and Hong Kong hit US$3.2 billion in 2011, a year-on-year increase of 37 percent.
Nha added that the two sides have enormous potential for cooperation, not only in economics and trade but also in culture and education.
MCST Deputy Minister Le Khanh Hai said after 20 years of renewal process, Vietnam has won credit for its socio-political stability, constant high growth, and open policies for investors.
For his part, Jonathan Choi, President of the Hong Kong-Vietnam Chamber of Commerce, said Vietnam blessed with beautiful landscape is drawing an increasing number of visitors. So while investing in the country businesses should spare time studying Vietnam’s land, people and culture.
