Prime Minister Mario Draghi said that Italy is very concerned about the loss of control of Vietnam’s cashew containers exported to this country and will bring the case to trial.
At the phone conversation with Prime Minister Pham Minh Chinh This afternoon, Italian Prime Minister Mario Draghi said that he had directed Italian authorities to prevent the delivery of goods to third parties and continue to investigate and bring the case to trial.
Prime Minister Pham Minh Chinh thanked Italy for its active cooperation in handling the case.
Containers of cashews for export The loss of control of 5 Vietnamese enterprises began to be discovered in early March when exporters discovered many signs of fraud when sending documents to collect money from Vietnamese banks to Turkish banks. The SWIFT number (the unique code of each bank used in global interbank transactions), has been changed many times.
After the buyer’s bank received the documents, the purchasing partner again informed them that their information was incorrect, requesting the return of the documents, but did not specify any form of payment even though the Vietnamese bank had many contact times. Some other contracts are notified by the Italian bank, the documents sent are only copies, not the originals, even blank papers.
According to Vietnam Trade Counselor in Italy Nguyen Duc Thanh, in 36 containers of cashews are out of controlIn fact, only 35 units have lost the original set of documents (the rest have found documents and are in the process of being sold to foreign partners). Of these, 10 containers have already reached an agreement with the shipping company on the deposit and guarantee to bring the goods back to Vietnam.
Another 9 containers were ordered by a company that “didn’t know that someone was in their name” to order. Therefore, they refused to receive the above shipment so that the shipping line could return ownership to the seller. The remaining 16 containers are being processed further.
Currently, the Ministry of Public Security is coordinating with Italian authorities to investigate and clarify fraud so that the court can make a judgment, as a basis for businesses to soon get their goods back.

Prime Minister Mario Draghi pledged that the Government of this country will push the Italian National Assembly to soon ratify the EVIPA Agreement; affirmed that Italian businesses want to continue investing in Vietnam in the fields of renewable energy, infrastructure, water resource management, innovation…
