The diplomat underlined the trend among young Chilean entrepreneurs to seek investment opportunities in Southeast Asia, including Vietnam.

A representative of the Chilean Ministry of Foreign Affairs said the Vietnam – Chile free trade agreement, effective in 2014, has made significant contributions to increasing trade exchanges between the two nations.

Vietnam can serve as a gateway for Chilean products to enter ASEAN markets, while Chile as a bridge connecting Vietnam and Latin America.

The seminar, jointly hosted by the Embassy of Vietnam and the Manufactured Product Exporters Association of Chile (ASEXMA) also aimed to announce the cooperation opportunities between the two countries at the 28th Vietnam International Trade Fair (Vietnam Expo 2018) slated for April.

It drew a crowd of local enterprises operating in aquaculture, food processing, agriculture, energy, among others.
