Mr. Nguyen Quang Vinh said that VCCI would coordinate with Nepal to invite Vietnamese enterprises to attend the exhibition in Nepal as well as Nepalese enterprises to attend the exhibition in Vietnam. He also said that import-export and tourism will be areas of cooperation with many prospects for bilateral cooperation, so the two sides need to study, discuss and deploy many activities to further develop the bilateral trade ties.
