HÀ NỘI – The Vietnamese and Indonesian economies share many similarities, conducive to cooperation in trade, agriculture, and fisheries promotion, said experts at a symposium held in Hồ Chí Minh City on Monday. The event was co-organised by the municipal Investment and Trade Promotion Center (ITPC) and the Consulate General of Indonesia in the southern economic hub. Hồ Thị Quyên, Deputy Director of the ITPC, said Indonesia is Việt Nam’s third-largest trading partner in the ASEAN region and potential import market. According to statistics from the General Department of Vietnam Customs, the countries’ trade reached nearly US$14 billion in 2023, with Việt Nam's export value to Indonesia exceeding $5 billion. Meanwhile, Edwin Setiawan Tjie, Chairman of the Indonesian Business Association in the city, stressed that apart from trade, the countries see potential for joint works in agro-fishery development.
