Russian firms meet their Vietnamese counterparts

The Russian Export Centre held a networking event in HCM City on April 10, 2018, to enable Vietnamese and Russian business executives to meet each other and improve the business relationship between the two countries. Held at the Rex Hotel, it was attended by around 20 businesses from the two countries.
Robert Kurilo, chief representative of the Russian Export Centre in Hà Nội, said: “Việt Nam is good at agriculture, medical products and tourism, which Russia has high demand for”. “However, trade between the two countries has not been as good as we would hope”.

“But with the support of businesses, the Việt Nam Chamber of Commerce and Industry (VCCI) and Russian authorities, we hope to build the relationship between the two sides.”
Sergey Klishin of Schelkovo Agrohim, one of Russia’s largest plant protection chemical manufacturers, said: “We are here to network with Vietnamese companies and research the plant protection chemicals market in Việt Nam as we are aware that Việt Nam has high demand for such products. We are looking for partners so we can tap the market.”
Nguyễn Việt Anh, marketing manager of NaFoods Group (a Vietnamese fruit and vegetable exporter), said the event was a great opportunity to meet with Russian companies that can help export Vietnamese fruits to Russia, which has great demand for Vietnamese fruits.
Since January this year logistic companies such as Russian Railway Logistics are providing services enabling export of Vietnamese goods to Russia and vice versa by rail, which is faster than by sea.
REC’s Russian Gastro House in District 1, a showroom for Russian food items, plans to expand in the next few months. It will change its name to Trading House of Russian Export Centre and showcase more types of products and organise more promotional events.
