Singapore can aid the southern province of Ben Tre in human resources training and boost its import of agro-aquatic products and seafood, Singaporean Ambassador to Vietnam Ng Tech Hean revealed at a February 19 working session with provincial leaders.

Singapore is willing to train Ben Tre’s skilled professionals at the Hanoi-based Vietnam-Singapore Training Centre and in Singapore , the ambassador promised at the session.

Singapore is in need of agro-aquatic products and seafood imported from Ben Tre. One Singaporean business has poured 500,000 USD into purchasing the products and it is hoped to be the first of many.

Vo Thanh Hao, Chairman of the Ben Tre provincial People’s Committee, said his province has great potential in farm production and is ready to welcome Singapore ’s agricultural product importers and investors specialising in high technology and green tourism.

Praising Ben Tre’s initiative in organising an investment promotion conference that will take place in Singapore this year, the diplomat pledged to actively introduce the locality’s potential and strengths to Singaporean investors at the event.
