NDO/VNA – The Commercial Counsellor Conference 2016 was opened in the central city of Da Nang by the Ministry of Industry and Trade (MoIT) on February 24.

According to Deputy Industry and Trade Minister Nguyen Cam Tu the conference aims to boost exports through enhanced coordination and support between Vietnamese trade counsellors abroad with local authorities and enterprises.

Vice Chairman of the Da Nang municipal People’s Committee Ho Ky Minh said he hopes the event will bring about opportunities to help Vietnamese export enterprises to make roads into foreign markets.

He proposed that Vietnamese commercial counsellors located in foreign countries should provide information on foreign markets and goods for provinces, cities and local enterprises while supporting localities in marketing local products to international markets.

In return, Vietnamese commercial counsellors in the US, Belgium and the EU have said Vietnamese enterprises should also seek assistance from overseas Vietnamese, who have a deep understanding of goods demand in foreign markets.

A seminar focusing on solving difficulties and hindrances for enterprises in the Central Highlands was also held during the event.
