The event was jointly held by the Vietnamese embassy’s trade office in India, the Confederation of Indian Industry, the Vietnam Chamber of Commerce and Industry, and other relevant agencies.

In the country’s role as the ASEAN Chair in 2020, Vietnam has been actively exchanging information with other ASEAN member countries with regard to the Indian proposals to use electronic certificates of origin, with several countries restricting travel in the context of the complicated nature of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) epidemic, noted ambassador Chau.

This move comes following the nation receiving a proposal from the Indian Government on April 17 which urged consideration to be made and approval to be granted to the e-CO via the Indian electronic portal for the benefits of tariff preferences in line with the ASEAN-India Free Trade Agreement.

The embassy also offered a report to the Government Office in which it requests all relevant ministries to grant approval to the Indian proposals swiftly in an effort to remove difficulties faced by local firms that have been severely affected by the COVID-19 pandemic.

The Vietnamese diplomat went on to emphasize that any delays in accepting the e-CO will cause great damage to domestic businesses and make it far more challenging to reach the bilateral trade turnover target of US$15 billion which has been set by the end of the year.
