Vietnam Ambassador to India, H.E. Pham Sanh Chau, in March sought increased cooperation with industries and the travel community based in Chandigarh, Punjab, Haryana and Himachal Pradesh. Both Punjab and Haryana have emerged as significant markets sharing economic and touristic potential with Vietnam, he told the media here.

“Punjab is a key hub for textile-based industries, including yarn, readymade garments and hosiery, pharmaceutical and agricultural products, whose exports feature Vietnam among India’s top 15 trading partners in 2019,” he said. “Vietnam is also an ideal honeymoon destination for couples in the region and fast becoming popular as a perfect destination to celebrate dream weddings.” Mr Chau said “We aspire to forge a positive relationship between India and Vietnam across a wide number of sectors. From developing Indian business interests in Vietnam to working closely with travel agencies in northern India to boost tourism, we work to create a favourable image of Vietnam by developing economic and touristic activities in the region.” In contrast to other ASEAN economies, Vietnam has succeeded in keeping the coronavirus under control.
