NDO/ VNA – Prime Minister Nguyen Xuan Phuc hosted a reception in Hanoi, on August 16, for Belgian Ambassador Jehanne Roccas, Ambassador and head of the European Union (EU) Delegation to Vietnam Bruno Angelet and Charge D’affaires of the German embassy in Vietnam Wolfgang Manig to discuss the investment promotion activities of European businesses in Vietnam.

The PM spoke highly of the ties between Vietnam and the EU, in particular the ties with Germany and Belgium.

The Vietnamese government always creates the most favourable conditions for domestic and foreign firms to conduct business in the country, he assured the guests.

He also affirmed that Vietnam expects European investment on the back of their advanced and eco-friendly technologies, adding that he is ready to direct ministries, agencies and localities to clear any barriers facing European enterprises in Vietnam.

Discussing Hamon Corporation’s desulphurisation contract at Song Hau 1 thermal power plant, Belgian Ambassador Jehanne Roccas said that Hamon wishes that the Vietnamese government and agencies would promptly push forward the deal on a mutually-beneficial basis.

The host expressed his wish that the ambassador would serve as a bridge linking the two countries’ businesses together in order to learn about business environment and opportunities in Vietnam and Europe.

Roccas also hoped that partnership between Hamon and Vinh Tan 1 thermal power plant would go smoothly.
