According to a trade bureau of a Vietnamese Embassy in France, France is the Vietnamese weave industryâ€™s fifth largest market place in EU. Vietnam creates favourable conditions for French investors to investigate opportunities with domestic businesses and offers them favoured policies like corporate income taxation cuts, material import taxation cuts and reduced land employing cost.
Cooperation and investment opportunities in the Vietnamese garment sector were introduced at a conference held by French non-profit Evalliance association, which was established in 2014 to connect the EU and Indochina in the industry.

Vietnam is the sixth largest garment supplier for the EU with export revenue of 3 billion euros every year. According to experts, Vietnam-EU free trade agreement will allow Vietnam to consolidate its position as a leading exporter to the EU.
After the deal takes effect, 71 percent of Vietnamese exports to the EU will be duty free while other tax lines will be dropped in the following seven years.
