We promote European sustainable investment and trade through good corporate citizenship, collaboration and engagement with the Vietnamese society. We support the European businesses community to connect with the Vietnamese Government and authorities to advocate for and to improve the business environment. We thereby contribute to Vietnam’s sustainable development and growth" ,said Mr. Ruebbert.
