Taipei-An industrial forum aimed at fostering cooperation between Taiwan and Vietnam has concluded successfully, providing new opportunities for future exchanges, according to the Chinese National Federation of Industries (CNFI) on Friday.
Organized by CNFI, the 2017 Taiwan-Vietnam Industrial Collaboration Forum was held in Ho Chi Minh City on Thursday, during which about 800 leaders and representatives from the industrial sectors of both countries were present.
With Vietnam's recently introduced domestic trade development targets for 2025, the timing is just right for Taiwan to further promote its "New Southbound Policy" and to strengthen Taiwan's trade and economic ties with the country, CNFI Chairman Rock Hsu (???) said.
He led a 300-member delegation from Taiwan to Vietnam to attend the forum and seek investment and business opportunities.
According to CNFI, the Southeast Asian country's trade development plans currently focus on areas such as information technology, machinery production, metallurgy, and agricultural processing.
Taiwan has a lot to offer Vietnam in terms of its expertise in textile and machinery manufacturing, information technology, and semiconductor production, Industrial Development Bureau (IDB) Deputy Director Yu Chen-wei (???) was quoted as saying in the report.
Meanwhile, the CNFI also expressed hope that the two sides can further increase the exchange of experiences in technology cooperation, manpower training, and brand building.
It added that the CNFI looks forward to staging the bilateral forum each year to boost exchanges between the two countries.
