Vietnam ‘outreach’ visit
Bill Ballenden (ICA president) and Bill Kingdon (ICA Managing Director) made an ‘outreach’ themed visit to Vietnam last month. Travelling directly from the ICA’s Hong Kong 2018 trade event, the two Bills visited Hanoi, Nam Dinh, Hue and Ho Chi Minh City where they met with representatives from nearly 30 companies, which included most of our ICA members in Vietnam. They also visited mills in Nam Dinh and Hue as well as hosting events in each of the major cities.
Bill Kingdon explains; “The theme of the visit was ‘outreach’ so we used this opportunity to explain the benefits that the ICA brings to the cotton market and the networking opportunities that membership provides. We visited several modern and impressive mills. It’s great to see how the market is developing in this vibrant country.”
