NDO/VNA – Vietnamese Ambassador to Algeria Pham Quoc Tru paid a working trip to the southern province of Tamanrasset from April 10-13.

During his stay, he held working sessions with Governor of Tamanrasset province Doumi Djillali and leaders of the provincial Chamber of Commerce and Industry, during which both sides discussed their respective socio-economic development, business opportunities, and specific measures to further lift bilateral economic ties.

The provincial authorities expressed their desire to boost ties with Vietnam in the fields of trade, agriculture, mining, and tourism.

On the occasion, the embassy partnered with the provincial Chamber of Commerce and Industry to hold a round-table seminar for the introduction of opportunities for bilateral cooperation in export-import and investment, with more than 30 firms taking part.

Speaking at the event, Ambassador Tru stressed the need to remove existing barriers to trade and investment, refine a synchronous legal framework with support measures, and make it easier for the two countries’ enterprises to access each other’s markets.

He also unveiled a plan to hold a tourism business forum in September, to which Tamanrasset’s travel agencies will be invited.

Vietnamese Commercial Counsellor Hoang Duc Nhuan briefed participants about Vietnam – Algeria economic, trade, and investment ties over the past years and the prospects for future development. He also introduced a French-language book entitled “Handbook of doing business with Vietnam” and a list of prestigious international fairs and exhibitions held in Vietnam.

While in Tamanrasset, the Vietnamese delegation visited several major local firms operating in the manufacture of construction stones and agricultural farms.
