VISIT TO HCMC OF EU AMBASSADORS TO VIETNAM (13-14 JUNE 2019)

The annual visit to HCMC of EU Heads of Missions to Vietnam took place last 13th and 14th June. Its main goal was to consolidate the friendly and open relations between EU representatives and the authorities of the largest and most dynamic city of Vietnam, to coordinate the European visibility and public diplomacy action with the local EU Consulates General and –finally- to exchange views and compare notes with the European businesses gathered into Eurocham, the European Chamber of Commerce headquartered in HCMC.

In a friendly atmosphere, the meeting with the Chairman of the HCMC People’s Committee, Mr Nguyen Thanh Phong, set a constructive occasion to discuss about infrastructures, development of the smart city strategy, preservation and promotion of cultural heritage and cooperation on educational programs.

During the two-days mission, Ambassadors and Consuls General had the chance to visit the metro line 1 sites under construction, as well as the factories of ScanCom (Danish company specialized in outdoor furniture, with a sustainable production) and Datalogic (Italian excellence in high-tech manufacturing of data collection devices for industrial and retail purposes, entirely run by Vietnamese managers and workers).
