(VOV) - A delegation from Cambodia’s Battambang province, led by its governor Prach Chan, is visiting Vietnam’s southern province of An Giang to seek cooperative opportunities in agriculture and aquaculture development.
During a working session with An Giang provincial leaders on April 8, the two sides briefed each other on the socio-economic development in their provinces and affirmed they would create the best possible conditions for investors from both localities to do business.
Battambang has around 280,000 hectares of farm land, which is equal to that of An Giang, but its agricultural output is only 20 percent of An Giang’s figure.
Governor Prach Chan said he hopes that An Giang will share experiences in management and application of modern technologies and transfer rice cultivation and aquaculture techniques to Battambang. He also called on An Giang businesses to invest in agriculture in his province.
For his part, Secretary of the An Giang provincial Party Committee, Phan Van Sau, pledged to further strengthen cooperation with Battambang in agriculture, education, and health care.
An Giang is willing to help train officials and students from Battambang, Sau said.
During their stay in An Giang from April 6-8, the delegation visited the An Giang aquaculture breeding development centre, the Thuan An Company, Binh Duc breeding centre, and Vinh Binh seed plant.
