Despite the pandemic, 2020 has been an important year for Vietnam with the signing of the Free Trade Agreement with the EU: a further economic and commercial measure to support the growth of over 6,000 Italian Italian companies currently present and a stimulus to welcome new ones in the future.

The event aims to present the dynamism of the Vietnamese people to the productive system of Florence and Tuscany and the important policies adopted after the war period of the 70s, with which it was able to transform a country into strong economic and social crisis, making it one of the reference countries worldwide due to its constant growth over the last 20 years.
