Nguyen Tien Thanh expressed his desire to establish multifaceted cooperation between Thai Binh and Nevers, encompassing investment and trade exchanges, import and export promotion, human resource development, and collaboration in high technology, education, healthcare, equipment production, and cultural exchanges.

He commended the involvement of businesses and partners from Nevers and noted the keen interest of Thai Binh’s organizations and businesses in exploring cooperation and investment opportunities in Nevers, particularly in trade, green energy, digital transformation, finance, and banking.

With Thai Binh’s vision, potential, and development aspirations, Nguyen Tien Thanh is optimistic about the diverse and tangible cooperation prospects with French partners, especially those in Nevers.
