In the context of the strengthening of economic cooperation between Algeria and the Socialist Republic of Vietnam, his excellency Sir PHAM Quoc Tru, Ambassador of Vietnam in Algiers, made a working visit to Bejaia. 

His first Stopover was the port of Béjaïa where he was received by the company's senior executives for a working session.

A brief overview of the history of Bejaia and its port was presented to the EPB host, followed by a presentation of the port's activities, the management by terminals, medium- and long-term port infrastructure development projects, and the creation of extra-port logistics zones.

These explanations highlighting the assets of the Company, were followed with great interest by his Excellency Mr. PHAM Quoc Tru, who evoked the trade exchanges between Algeria and Vietnam, which, despite a slight increase, remain according to him insufficient.

In effect, it will clarify, algeria imported mainly agricultural products from Vietnam (rice, spices, cashew nuts ....). As for the import of Algerian products by Vietnam, their quantity remains small, he added.

Economic cooperation between the two countries is therefore called, to expand and diversify, thanks to the will of the two countries.

The meeting with the managers of the port and that scheduled with the economic operators of the city of bejaia, which has great potential, both in agriculture and tourism, will contribute consistently to establish strong economic and trade relations between the two countries, noted with satisfaction his Excellency Mr. PHAM Quoc Tru, which did not fail to express at the end of this visit, its deep appreciations for the warm welcome that was reserved for him.
