Viet Nams Ministry of Industry and Trade (MoIT) and the Viet Nam Association of Supporting Industries (VASI) have been in Canada to explore new business opportunities.

One of the key sectors they are chasing is the supporting industry, which was discussed during a workshop in Montreal on Wednesday.

Nguyen Hong Duong, Deputy Director of MoIT's Europe-America Market Department highlighted advantages from the Canadian market for Viet Nam in development of its supporting industry.

These included increasing attention from Canadian authorities for Viet Nam and CPTPP, a free trade agreement for 11 Asia-Pacific member countries including Viet Nam and Canada.

Duong said the automobile, textile and food processing industries will be sectors that Viet Nam expects to have strong cooperation with Canada in developing the supporting industries. — VNS
