Ambassador of Vietnam to Bangladesh Pham Viet Chien recently said his government wants the latter to export more to Vietnam to reduce trade gap. Several Vietnamese companies are operating in Bangladesh and are doing well, he said when a delegation led by him visited the Dhaka Chamber of Commerce and Industry (DCCI) to participate in a meeting.
For bilateral trade to flourish, Bangladesh needs to develop its logistic sector, he was quoted as saying by a news agency.
The ambassador also requested the business community of Bangladesh to send trade delegations to Vietnam for more interaction.
Members of the visiting Vietnamese delegation said Vietnam can export construction stones, clinker, food items and spices and import jute, jute goods and pharmaceutical products from Bangladesh.
Vietnam is the 18th largest import partner and 44th largest export market of Bangladesh.
