Vietnam and Primorye territory have enjoyed sound relations in recent years with increasing numbers of Vietnamese students and enterprises coming to the locality to study or seek business opportunities, President Sang stressed.

He said that Primorye leaders need to provide preferential investment policies to Vietnamese ministries and localities, while ironing out challenges in obtaining visas, establishing direct flight links, as well as labour usage.

President Sang also confirmed that Vietnamese ministries and agencies will create optimal conditions to enhance collaboration between two sides’ businesses.

For his part, Governor Vladimir Miklushevsky underlined advantages in his locality’s external economic policies, which encourage infrastructure construction to lure foreign investment.

Being a leading economy in Russia’s Far East, Primorye has great potential in seafood processing and the wood industry, he said, adding that commodities from the province can easily access the Vietnamese market through Vladivostok port.

He expressed his hope that the two sides will work together in fields of mutual strength.
