A project aiming to develop small- and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) was launched in the Mekong Delta province of Tra Vinh on January 30.

The project will have an estimated investment of 10.2 million USD, 9.2 million of which has been funded by the Canadian Department of Foreign Affairs, Trade and Development.

The six-year programme will contribute to designing the province’s five-year SMEs development plan, as well as improving local infrastructure and the ability of administrative systems to support SMEs.

As many as 200 enterprises and more than 194,000 people in 20 rural communes of Tra Vinh will benefit from the project.-VNA
