Lao Deputy PM Sonexay Siphadone is welcomed in Tien Giang province

At the meeting, Nguyen Van Danh, Secretary of the provincial Party Committee, briefed the guests on the local economic potential, culture and history, as well as cooperation opportunities in key fields.

Tien Giang has developed fruitful cooperation with Lao localities, particularly Khammouane province. The two localities have signed numerous agreements on cooperation in aquaculture, aquatic products processing, agricultural development, sports-culture and art, and education-training.

The province exported goods worth VND278,000 to Laos in 2016, up 33.61% annually and the figure exceeded US$160,000 in the first nine months this year.

It has strong potential for agricultural production as the province produces over 1.3 million tonnes of rice per year, alongside millions of tonnes of fruits of all kinds and over 700,000 tonnes of vegetables.

The locality has also created opportunities for investment in industrial parks and clusters.

The Lao Deputy PM said his visit aims to consolidate the traditional friendship between the two nations, including Tien Giang.

He lauded the province’s socio-economic and cultural progress and acknowledged its efforts to boost its cooperation with Khammouane, thus further tightening the relationship between the two nations.

He also showed his interest in the cooperation potential between Tien Giang and Lao localities, particularly in agriculture and ecotourism development, hoping that the locality would tap the potential in the future.

On the occasion, Sonexay Siphadone visited the Southern Fruit Research Institute and the Research Centre of Medicinal Plants in the Military Zone 9 in the province.
