Talking about the business trip to VN

Speaking

There are many business trips abroad such as VN and I should learn English more because there are more opportunities to communicate with foreign customers and I need to send emails in English to them. I am been there last week, or the week before last week.  I went to Ho Chi Minh, It is full of opportunities. It is developing fast especially the traffic, the economic but it is crowded and there is a little mess because the bicycle and the bus they on the same way so it is dangerous to drive.

The food is good but some friends told me that it is not very safe because especially vegetables they are not very clean, some involve chemicals but the population is increasing yay and it is the biggest city in Vietnam.

Many industries are developing fast and our company is a chemical plant and we went there for the purpose of investing in a chemical plant and some buildings , house buildings.
Because we went there through the agent and they told us now the field is belong to the farmers and they can sell the rights by negotiation so I think the price is a big point.

we went many places in HCM just by the car, when I bitted in the car I was scared because it alarmed you are too close to the other cars of bicycles.
