Mr. Nguyen Ngoc Sang, Chairman of Vietnam Packaging Association (VINPAS) said: Foreign packaging enterprises come to Vietnam to invest in factories to take advantage of business opportunities, but they are also the driving force for the packaging industry in the country. When the market is fiercely competitive, domestic businesses will have to invest more and change in time to keep up with the development of the packaging industry.
