Permanent vice secretary of Vietnam’s Vinh Phuc province, Tran Van Vinh, and his entourage arrived in Moscow on 3 September for the start of a trade mission to promote dragon fruit and banana exports to Russia, the website said.
Welcoming the delegation, Vietnam’s charge d’affaires to Russia Lai Ngoc Doan said he hoped information gained from the trip would be used when formulating the province’s economic and trade policy to Russia. The Embassy of Vietnam in Moscow has been working to connect Vietnamese enterprises with the Russian market, he added.
