Speaking at the Vietnam-Netherlands business networking event, Nguyen Quang Vinh, Vice Chairman of the Vietnam Chamber of Commerce and Industry (VCCI), discussed the potential for cooperation between the Vietnamese and Dutch business communities. He emphasized that there are still many opportunities and strengths that the two sides can complement and support each other.

Vice Chairman of VCCI also praised the business activities of Dutch enterprises in Vietnam in recent times, which have made practical contributions to Vietnam's economic development and the Vietnam-Netherlands relationship.

In particular, Vice Chairman of VCCI suggested that Dutch businesses could expand cooperation and strengthen connections with Vietnamese enterprises in areas where Vietnam has strengths, such as high-tech agriculture, new energy, renewable energy, semiconductors, climate change adaptation, shipbuilding services, seaports, shipbuilding technology, and logistics.

In particular, Vice Chairman of VCCI stated that Vietnam is focusing more on the green transformation of the economy and also combating climate change. This is also one of the focal activities of VCCI in the near future.

VCCI, with its core being the Vietnam Business Council for Sustainable Development (VBCSD), will continue to enhance awareness-raising activities for the business community by developing a network of media outlets on sustainable development and organizing platforms for sustainable development dialogues such as the Vietnam Sustainable Development Business Forum (VCSF).

Furthermore, there will be a focus on strengthening the building and development of members, as well as partner networks with the participation of domestic and international development organizations. In fact, some large Dutch enterprises like Heineken have been active partners in promoting sustainable development in Vietnam in recent times.

Vice Chairman of VCCI also added that one of the action priorities of VBCSD from this year onwards is the establishment of task groups focusing on "green transformation" and "ESG and green finance". This will also be an opportunity for Dutch businesses to enhance cooperation, share experiences, and promote Vietnam's green transformation process.

At the same time, VCCI commits to always accompany, support in solving difficulties, and help the Dutch business community successfully connect and invest in Vietnam.
