New Danish website in Vietnam

Mogens Poulsen, Counsellor and Head of the Private Sector Development Programme (PSD) at the Royal Danish Embassy in Hanoi has launched a new website – – dedicated to help Danish and Vietnamese business enterprises understand the Danida PSD Programme as well as the TechChange programme.
      The PSD programme aims at creating economic growth and poverty alleviation through support to commercially viable businesses. It supports all sorts of Danish Vietnamese business projects as long as it is fair to assume that the proposed business co-operation will have a genuine development impact. In some cases, even other Scandinavian companies with daughter companies in Denmark might benefit from the programme.
      At this point, the most successful projects have been concentrated within the garments and fisheries sectors. Other very interesting areas of co-operation where more activity is expected in the near future are within furniture and agriculture. It is noteworthy that in these sectors business enterprises in both countries have comparative advantages, and so through specific transfers of competence joint projects are able to compete internationally.
      The website also covers the opportunities offered by the TechChange programmme. This is a programme where the initial match-making takes place in Denmark in connection with trade fairs relating to industry in general and particular industries such as agricultural machinery, food processing and the building industry.
      TechChange takes place in Denmark and is part of a range of trade fairs which have been selected especially for this purpose. A separate area at each trade fair is dedicated to a TechChange pavilion where representatives from the companies involved can meet face to face to discuss future business opportunities.
      To be invited by Denmark to participate in TechChange, Vietnamese companies have to describe a sound and commercially viable project which would benefit from new technology and know-how from Denmark.
