Authorities of the Mekong delta province of An Giang had a working session on November 21 with visiting Israeli businesses seeking partnerships in fish farming and processing.

Omri Horowitz, President of the Vietnam-Israel Trade Board, who headed the delegation, said he was very keen on the ideal farming and processing conditions in An Giang.

Apart from coming up with environmentally-friendly breeding and processing technologies, Israel will also pour investments in the field, he said.

Le Van Nung, Vice Chairman of the provincial People’s Committee, said An Giang is confident of its resources and potential to push further the cooperation with Israel.

He tabled incentives in land rent and corporate tax for Israeli businesses investing in the locality.

He said more favourable conditions will be created for foreign enterprises, including those from Israel.

According to the Vice Chairman, Israel had recently transferred the breeding technology for male blue-legged prawn breed to An Giang, helping the province to overcome the shortage of breeding stock.

During their November 20-22 fact-finding tour, the visiting Israeli businesspeople visited a number of fish farms and processing facilities of the Viet An Seafood Company, the Binh Minh Seafood Processing Company, the Angifish Import-Export Company, the Nam Viet Company and the Thuan An Trade and Service Company.-VNA
