An Giang (VNA)
– Japan-based Horimasa Co. Ltd is seeking cooperation opportunities in the fields of organic agriculture, kindergarten education and hotel-restaurant management training in An Giang province, said the company’s president Masaharu Hori.

During a working session with the Mekong Delta province’s leaders on May 29, he unveiled that the company firstly wants to invest in Tilapia and Tra fish rearing and vegetable growing in greenhouses following the Aquaponics model, which he said allows quick detection of diseases and tracing of food origins.

Aquaponics refers to any system that combines raising aquatic animals in tanks with cultivating plants in water in a symbiotic environment.

Horimasa also holds advantages in kindergarten education as it is running 22 open and friendly kindergartens in Japan and other countries, Masaharu Hori said, adding that the company wants to build Japanese-standard kindergartens in An Giang.

These facilities will be in line with Vietnamese conditions, serve local demand, and help reduce pressure on public investment in education, he noted.

Lauding Horimasa’s interest in An Giang investment climate, Vice Chairman of the provincial People’s Committee Lam Quang Thi suggested the group hold workshops on Aquaponics and transfer the technology to the province.

He vowed to create best conditions possible for Horimasa’s future projects in An Giang.-VNA
