Ambassador Phan Chi Thanh encouraged overseas Vietnamese in the Phuket province to overcome difficulties caused by the COVID-19 pandemic.

The ambassador highly appreciated the support of the Phuket government for the Vietnamese community in the province. He hoped that the overseas Vietnamese community continued promoting solidarity, complying with the local laws, and contributing to the development of the locality.

At the meeting with overseas Vietnamese community in Phuket, the ambassador also briefed Vietnam’s economic achievements as well as the country’s developmental goals in the next 5-10 years as approved at the 13th National Party Congress.

On this occasion, the Vietnamese diplomat also worked with the Thailand-Vietnam Business Association.

Thailand-Vietnam Business Association includes enterprises owned by Vietnamese Thai people. Most of them are small and medium-sized enterprises, operating in many fields such as agriculture, furniture, hotels, restaurants, manufacturing, and distribution of consumer products, and fast food

Many enterprises have achieved considerable successes, had a fairly solid position in the Thailand market, and proceeded to export goods to other countries in the region, including Vietnam.

Notably, young Vietnamese Thai people are dynamic and put forth many business initiatives. Besides, they are actively seeking opportunities to expand cooperation with Vietnamese partners.

According to the ambassador, the investment and import-export between the two countries have ample room, thus, enterprises need to seek and seize opportunities.

He asked enterprises to strengthen solidarity and mutual support, contributing to Thailand's economic development as well as serving as an effective bridge for Vietnam and Thailand friendship.

Ambassador Thanh also informed the plan of organizing a number of forums, conferences, seminars, and exhibitions on economic cooperation to promote investment and business opportunities in Vietnam and Thailand.

He asked members of the Thailand-Vietnam Business Association to actively participate in the above mentioned activities to further enhance the role of overseas businesses in fostering economic cooperation between the two nations./.
