Barcelona, Spain (PortSEurope) November 9, 2018 – Barcelona port managers will travel November 12-16 to Vietnam to strengthen commercial links with the Asian country, in a mission led by the Minister of Territory and Sustainability of Catalonia, Damià Calvet, and the president of the port, Mercè Conesa. A delegation of about forty people will visit the Vietnamese capital, Hanoi, and the city of reference for
commercial activity in the country, Ho Chin Minh. Import and export companies of the logistic and port sectors will participate in the mission of the port, whose programme includes two business days in which the port’s maritime and logistics offer, a Customs Technical Seminar and bilateral business meetings will be presented, as well as institutional acts. The objective of the meeting is “to strengthen the business and institutional links between Vietnam and Catalonia and generate business opportunities, contributing to the internationalisation of companies and the promotion of the logistics community of Barcelona”. Until September 2018, the port handled 51 million tonnes, 12.3% more than in the same period of 2017, and Vietnam figured during the first nine months of the year as one of the markets that grew the most in its exchanges with the Catalan harbour, with an increase of 26% over the previous year.
