Vietnamese and European businesses meet to search of partnerships

Ha Noi, Nov. 30 (VNA) -- Representatives of more than 100 construction companies from the European Union and Viet Nam are meeting to explore possible partnerships at Ha Noi's first ever Asia-Interprise from Nov.29-Dec.1.

Asia-Interprise, run by the French Versailles Chamber of Commerce and the Viet Nam-based French Chamber of Commerce and Industry, offers Vietnamese construction companies the opportunity to develop cooperative potential with partners from Europe, particularly France, Italy and Belgium.

Asia-Interprise is part of the EU's Asia-Invest programme. The programme is offering half a million Euros to help Vietnamese companies train workers and attract EU partners.

The EU has helped Viet Nam preserve its urban heritage, bring street children into mainstream society and supply clean water.--VNA
