Representatives of nine central coastal provinces and foreign embassies, consulate generals and international organisations in Vietnam met in Hoi An city, central Quang Nam province on June 22 as part of activities during the 5th Quang Nam Heritage Festival.

The meeting, co-organised by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MoFA) and the provincial authorities, aimed to help the localities and their businesses broadcast their potentials and promote investment through the foreign representative agencies in Vietnam.

It was the MoFA’s initiative to boost closer and more effective cooperation between the localities in realising the country’s policy of active and proactive international integration, practically contributing to renovating the growth model towards their green growth and sustainable socio-economic development.

With focus on sustainable socio-economic development, human resources, and culture-tourism development, the meeting offered a useful forum for the nine central coastal provinces’ authorities and international friends to discuss potential, strengths, development experience and cooperation opportunities.-VNA
