Meet Europe 2018 will take place tomorrow, on May 25

The conference is organised by the Hanoi People’s Committee in collaboration with the Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MoFA), the European Union Delegation, and the European Chamber of Commerce in Vietnam (EuroCham) to promote investment and trade between Europe and Vietnam, including Hanoi.

Prime Minister Nguyen Xuan Phuc may attend the event, along with the leaders of MoFA, Hanoi, and other cities, as well as the European and Vietnamese business communities.

Meet Europe is an opportunity for local government leaders, Vietnamese businesses, and EU partners to discuss issues, create linkages, and widen co-operation in economic and trade ties as well as investment. This is good chance for Hanoi and the surrounding provinces to seek co-operation opportunities with foreign partners and lure investment into sectors of their choosing.

At the conference, Vietnamese localities will be updated on information on the situation, prospects, opportunities, and challenges of co-operation between Vietnam and the EU, especially in the context that the EU-Vietnam Free Trade Agreement (EVFTA) is expected to be signed this year.

The two countries’ businesses will discuss renewable energy, smart city, agriculture, and fishery business, infrastructure, logistics, Industry 4.0, health equipment, pharmaceuticals, tourism-hotel, and beverages.

The representatives of Hanoi city will present specific projects to attract investment into industry, real estate, services, and infrastructure in the city, as well as explain the changes in investment policies and orientation. As the Vietnam-EU relationship is growing tighter, the conference is expected to bring realistic benefits for both sides’ business communities.
