Vietnam, Denmark strengthen economic ties

Prime Minister Nguyen Xuan Phuc has wished Danish investors success in Vietnam, stressing that the Vietnamese Government is working hard to create the best possible investment and business environment for foreign firms.

Welcoming Danish Minister for Development Cooperation Ulla Tornas in Hanoi on Friday, PM Phuc called on more Danish companies to invest and do business in Vietnam. He said Vietnam hopes that Denmark will use its prestige and position to push for the signing and ratification of the free trade agreement between Vietnam and the European Union. Minister Ulla Tornas stressed that she hopes for the early signing and approval of the EU-Vietnam FTA, which will facilitate trade between Vietnam and Denmark. She suggested the two countries expand cooperative ties to areas of Denmark's strength, such as food safety, animal husbandry and particularly renewable energy, as 70 percent of power used in Denmark comes from renewable energy.
