Vietnam businesses in UK support pandemic fight in home country

Vietnamese businesses in the UK donated over 2 billion VND (equivalent to more than 87,800 USD) to support COVID-19 prevention and control efforts in Vietnam at a ceremony marking the 15th anniversary of the Vietnam Business Association in the UK.


At the ceremony held recently in London, Vietnamese Ambassador to the UK Nguyen Hoang Long called on the Vietnam Business Association in the UK to maintain its role as a bridge between the business community in the UK and Vietnam.

The Ambassador emphasized that this is a great opportunity that Vietnamese businesses in general and Vietnamese businesses in the UK in particular need to take advantage of.

The association also actively work to help Vietnamese expatriates in the UK to keep and develop the traditional culture through various community activities.

Bilateral trade between Vietnam and the UK has increased about 10 times from 600-700 million USD in 2007 to 6.5 billion USD in 2021, and is expected to reach 10 billion USD thanks to the implementation of the UK-Vietnam Free Trade Agreement./.
