Economic diplomacy – Metro system in Hanoi (January 17, 2017)


France welcomes the awarding of the contract for the supply of rolling stock for the Hanoi Metro Line 3 to the French consortium (Alstom, Colas Rail and Thales).

This 12.5 km line will serve 12 stations and represents an investment of €265 million.

The funding of this project is supported by the French mechanism aimed at enhancing our commercial proposals abroad. This agreement was signed this morning in the presence of Alain Vidalies, Minister of State for Transport, Marine Affairs and Fisheries.

This is one of the most important successes achieved by French firms in Vietnam.
