The meeting aimed to help enterprises and cooperatives in the province solve challenges facing their production and business and at the same time, provide them with information on the impact of the EVFTA as well as the COVID-19 pandemic on the national economy.

Participating businesses and cooperatives were briefed about international integration in 2020 and opportunities and challenges that it brings to Yen Bai and Vietnam at large. They were also introduced about the Comprehensive and Progressive Agreement for Trans-Pacific Partnership (CPTPP) and its impacts on the country’s economy.

They shared a common view that the EVFTA presents opportunities for Vietnamese firms in general and those in Yen Bai in particular to receive transfer of advanced technologies from the EU to increase productivity, product quality and competitiveness. The deal also provides local firms with chances to access the EU market and promote exports of the province’s key products.
