On October 10, 2023, K&D Trading had the honour of participating in the esteemed seminar, "Leverage FTAs to enter ASEAN: Manufacturing and Technology Opportunities for BC Business in Vietnam."
Co-organized by the British Columbia Ministry of Jobs, Economic Development and Innovation, the Vietnam Ministry of Industry and Trade, and the Vietnam Ministry of Science and Technology, the seminar aims to evaluate the CPTPP’s five years of implementation and the best course of action for maximizing its benefits in the new context of the Indo-Pacific Strategy and the upcoming Canada-ASEAN free trade agreement.
This conference is one of a series of events celebrating the 50th anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic relations between the two countries and the 30th anniversary of the establishment of the Canadian Trade Agency.
Vietnam is located in ASEAN, the region with the fastest economic growth in the world and is the top destination for Canadian goods and services among ASEAN countries thanks to an average economic growth rate of 7% over the past 30 years. Vietnam is being evaluated as a gateway for Canadian businesses that want to access this market of 660 million customers.
As K&D Trading, we are humbled to have had the chance to contribute to the sponsorship of gifts for all attendees. Also, we eagerly anticipate participating in more events of this nature, as they serve as valuable platforms to raise awareness of Vietnamese products in the Canadian market and foster stronger connections between Vietnam and Canada.
