Themed Viet Nam-Latin America: Trade and Investment Partnership for Development, the gathering aims to enhance friendship and mutual understanding between Viet Nam and the region and promote opportunities for partnerships and information exchange while seeking trade and investment.

It will focus its discussions on three main topics, including Vietnam-Latin America business and investment environment: Vietnamese-Latin American connectivity in transport, logistics, telecommunications and services; and Vietnamese-Latin American partnerships in agriculture and energy.

On addressing the opening ceremony, the Prime Minister Nguyen Tan Dung said that Vietnam is more than willing to become one of Latin America’s most important economic partners as well as act as a gateway so Latin American countries can access the large markets in the East Asian region. In its foreign policy, Vietnam always treasures; and is determined to develop friendship and cooperation with Latin America countries, for the sake of peace, stability, cooperation and development in the region and the world, he stressed.
