Delegates reached this general consensus at an August 16 seminar in Quang Ninh province’s Ha Long City.
Discussions emphasised Quang Ninh province’s important contributions to developing Vietnam’s coal and mineral industries.
Swedish Ambassador to Vietnam Camilla Mellander said the coal and mineral sector presents excellent opportunities for Vietnamese and Swedish cooperation.
As a leading European mining nation, Swedish can help Vietnamese businesses negotiate the partnerships that can fuel the industry’s technological innovations.
Major Swedish companies such as ABB, Scania, and SEK are willing to commit to long-term partnerships with Vietnamese colleagues working towards building an advanced mining industry.
Both sides used the seminar to strategise cooperation capable of assisting Vietnamese mining’s development.
