The Mekong delta province of An Giang will export its main products to the Netherlands, under a memorandum of understanding inked on December 2.

According to the document signed with the Netherlands’ Oss city, four enterprises in An Giang province will ship rice, frozen aquaculture, vegetables and rice husk to the Vietnam Trade House in the country for trade promotion activities.

Chairman of the provincial People’s Committee Vuong Binh Thanh said the cooperation between the two sides will pave the way for An Giang’s key products to enter the European market in the time ahead.

Thanh called for assistance from the Netherlands in planting potato on a trial basis in the province.

The province has invested over 15 million USD to build a high technology centre so that the Netherlands can transfer its potato growing methods, catering for domestic demand and for future exports, he added.

The MoU is an important step to link up An Giang province’s main products with the Dutch distribution system via Vietnam Trade House, said Bert Van Dijk, Oss Trading Centre Director.-VNA
