The traditional friendship and multifaceted cooperation between Vietnam and the Czech Republic have been constantly being promoted and promoted by the two countries’ people. Today Vietnam is still a familiar destination for Czech businesses to set up business in Vietnam.
At the Czech-Vietnamese Business Conference recently held in Hanoi, Deputy Minister of Industry and Trade of the Czech Republic – Mr Vladimir Bartl said that Vietnam is increasingly attracting investment from abroad, including the Czech Republic. The Czech Republic wishes to promote cooperation and investment between the two countries’ businesses in the areas such as environmental protection, mining technology, construction technology, chemicals, telecommunications, radar, industrial machinery and agriculture, especially biotechnology and nanotechnology.
On the Vietnamese side, the Vice President of the Vietnam Chamber of Commerce and Industry (VCCI) said that the economic and trade development between the two countries is based on three main features.
First, in terms of bilateral relations, trade exchange between the two countries have a stable growth and strong development. The potential investment cooperation areas between the Czech Republic and Vietnam are agricultural products, textiles, machinery and equipment, hospital medical equipment, energy and information technology.
Second is multilateral relations, Vietnam is now an important gateway to trade in ASEAN, the market with over 600 million people. The Czech businesses will have to prepare investment plans, not only with the Vietnam market with more than 90 million consumers but also to deepen access to the ASEAN market.
Meanwhile, the Czech Republic is the gateway for goods to enter the European Union (EU). Especially when the EU – Vietnam Free Trade Agreement (EVFTA) comes into effect, it will facilitate Vietnamese products entering the European market.
Finally, the cooperation between Vietnam and the Czech Republic is always given priority by the business community and the two Governments. The sixth session of the Intergovernmental Committee of Vietnam – Czech Republic is taking place in Hanoi, with the presence of many businesses of the two countries, especially the presence of Mr Vladimir Bartl has demonstrated this special relationship.
Finding the right business partner in Vietnam is also important. We recommend doing research on the reputation of the company and individual shareholders, corporate or individual, gathering publicly available company information, and performing background checks on key personnel to find potential risks in cooperation. Working with a reliable partner can help achieve economic benefits, saving time and money in business
