Vietnam and India have a long-standing traditional relationship that has been cultivated by the leaders of both countries. India and Vietnam established Diplomatic Relations in 1972, Strategic Partnership in 2007 and Comprehensive Strategic Partnership in 2016. Trade and investment cooperation is one of the main pillars of bilateral relations. In terms of investment, India has 315 active projects in Vietnam with a total investment capital of nearly 1 billion USD, ranking 26th out of 141 countries and territories investing in Vietnam.

The capital mainly focuses on the processing and manufacturing industries (accounting for 54.5%). In terms of trade, the two-way turnover in the first 10 months of 2021 reaches nearly 11 billion USD, up by nearly 40% y-o-y and surpasses the total trade turnover of 2020. India is currently among the top 10 biggesttrading partners of Vietnam while Vietnam is India’s fourth-largest trading partner in ASEAN.

Trade and investment cooperation between Vietnam and India has achieved positive results in recent years, but it is still modest and not commensurate with the potential and advantages of both sides. The economies of the two countries have many similarities, which can support and complement each other for mutual development. Specifically, India can become a supplier of input materials, for Vietnam in industries such as textiles and garments, shoes and leather, and machine manufacturing…; at the same time, creating more favorable conditions for Vietnamese products, such as consumer goods, electronics, agricultural and aquatic products, wood products, rubber…, to penetrate deeply the Indian market. Besides, Vietnam also offers a wide scope for cooperation and mutual support in the fields of textiles and garments, high-tech agriculture, biotechnology, pharmaceuticals, information technology, energy, infrastructure and mining.

It is affirming that Vietnam is enforcing many reforms to attract foreign investment, in line with OECD standards, which are: (1) maintaining socio-political and macroeconomic stability; (2) removing bottlenecks of the economy in terms of legal institutions, infrastructure and human resources; (3) developing supply chains and reducing transaction costs, especially logistics and administrative costs; (4) building a stable policy environment, which is highly predictable, with transparent implementation and greater accountability.

At the forum, many MOUs aresigned/exchanged between Vietnamese and Indian enterprises in the fields of public health, provision of pharmaceutical materials, drug and vaccine production, oil and gas, information technology and technology transfer, education, and tourism

Following the second session of the Conference, businesses of the two countries can participate in a B2B program to exchange information and seek opportunities for cooperation.
