MoscoVietnamese businesses in Russia head for homelandw’s Vietnamese Entrepreneurs Association has always helped businesses with any difficulties they encounter, stabilised their production, and assisted the Russian Vietnamese community’s development.

Vietnamese Entrepreneurs Association President Tran Dang Chung made the affirmation at a March 2 meeting reviewing the association’s activities in 2012 and devising orientations for the New Year.

Chung highlighted the association’s achievements in helping Vietnamese businesses map out and implement longer-term strategies, develop trademarks, penetrate the Russian market, protect fellow members’ legitimate rights, attend the Czech Republic’s Vietnamese Business Forum, and conduct a market survey in Krasnodar City.

In addition, the association and the Vietnam Chamber of Commerce and Industry (VCCI) successfully co-organised the Vietnam-Russia Business Forum as part of State President Truong Tan Sang’s high-level Russian visit in June 2012. It has also encouraged organisations to fundraise on behalf of soldiers stationed on the Spratly Islands, Agent Orange victims, and disadvantaged Vietnamese people.

Chung stated strengthening solidarity and developing community will continue to be association priorities in 2013. Other focuses include supporting businesses and overseas Vietnamese, attending the inauguration ceremony of a multi-functional culture and trade centre at the Hanoi-Moscow Hotel, organising partner-seeking visits to Volgograd City and Ukraine, and further fundraising mobilisation.

Vietnamese ambassador to Russia Pham Xuan Son praised the association’s 2012 achievements in supporting the community and participating in people-to-people activities that consolidate the Vietnam-Russia relationship. The ambassador noted Vietnam has begun Free Trade Area negotiations with the Customs Alliance of Russia, Belarus, and Kazakhstan.
The association should consult with businesses and the Vietnamese community to ensure they are kept up to date with developments in Russian laws and procedures, he said.

The ambassador said many Russian cities and localities are eager for Vietnamese businesses to increase investment and expand production.

He called on the association and its Vietnamese business members to contribute to important upcoming Russian visits of National Assembly Chairman Nguyen Sinh Hung and Prime Minister Nguyen Tan Dung. These visits present an opportunity to build upon the traditions of friendship, cooperation, and partnership between Vietnam and Russia.
