Over the past 50 years since the establishment of bilateral diplomatic relations in 1971, the friendship and cooperation, particularly economic ties between Vietnam and Switzerland have been strongly developed, including trade, investment, tourism and educational exchanges.

Given untapped potentials in each country, there are great prospects for fostering business and people-to-people exchanges. How could Swiss enterprises take advantage of the good relations between Switzerland and Vietnam? What are the opportunities, in this rapidly changing market, for Swiss enterprises, particularly in the French-speaking region? What sectors are the most promising ones? These are the main questions this Workshop, organized by the Permanent Mission of Vietnam in Geneva, will attempt to answer.

The event is open to Swiss entrepreneurs and enterprises from any sectors who are interested in exploring the Vietnamese market.
