UNIDO meets Binh Duong institutional delegation

Rome, July 23th 2012. The Vietnamese Ambassador in Italy, H.E. Nguyen Hoang Long, wished a greater involvement of the Italian enterprises in Vietnam during the workshop organized by Sviluppo Lazio in collaboration with UNIDO. This event aimed at introducing business opportunities available in the Vietnamese Province of Binh Duong.

Acknowledging UNIDO’s contribution, the Director of Industrial Affairs of Sviluppo Lazio, Mr. Luigi Campitelli, said that, in order to plan an appropriate follow up to this event, it’s really important to know which are the most interesting sectors in Binh Duong to promote these opportunities to the Regional business community. Mr. Campitelli invited companies from Lazio Region to open up to foreign markets and, in particular, to Vietnam. This country nowadays constitutes an excellent and strategic outpost to expand business into the Asian markets.

The Vietnamese institutional and entrepreneurial delegation promoted the Binh Duong Province, one of the most developed areas of the Country, with a good infrastructure network and a favorable environment for investments. Among the Vietnamese delegates there were also representatives from Becamex, the most important industrial group in the Province, working in the infrastructural sector, constructions, industrial cluster and investment promotion.

This initiative belongs to the SME Cluster Development project, implementing in Vietnam by UNIDO, in collaboration with the Italian Ministry of Foreign Affairs and the local Ministry for Planning and Investments. The project aims at promoting strategic partnerships between Italian and Vietnamese companies, through study missions and meetings; it also allows a support activity in defining industrial agreements.
