A delegation of Cuba’s news agency Prensa Latina (PL) made a tour of the southern provinces of Binh Duong and Dong Nai on October 3.

At a meeting with Binh Duong provincial officials, PL President Luis Enrique Gonzalez Acosta said he was impressed at the rapid development in the fields of industry and foreign direct investment in Binh Duong.

He said the PL will keep close attention on the development of Binh Duong – one of the economic development models that Cuba is interested in.

Local officials reported that the province attracted over 1.4 billion USD in FDI in the first nine months of this year period, bringing the total amount of foreign investment in the locality so far to more than 20 billion USD.

Meanwhile, in Dong Nai, the delegation was received by Chairman of the provincial People’s Committee Dinh Quoc Thai, who voiced his hope that the visit will open up new information channels for Vietnamese and Cuban businesses to know each other better, thus seeking more cooperation opportunities.

The Prensa Latina has already dispatched correspondents to Vietnam to inform the host’s socio-economic situation to Cuban people and those from Latin American countries.

The guests also made fact-finding tours to some industrial parks in the two localities, including the Vietnam-Singapore Industrial Park (VSIP) in Binh Duong and the Amata, Bien Hoa 2 in Dong Nai.-VNA
