The US State of Vermont is keen on developing multifaceted cooperation with Ho Chi Minh City, especially in agriculture, visiting Governor Peter Shumlin has told Chairman of HCM City People’ Committee Le Hoang Quan.

At his meeting with Quan on September 26, Peter Shumlin said his visit aims to introduce Vermont’s immigration policies which offer favourable conditions to attract businesses and students of Vietnam in general and HCM City in particular to the state.

Chairman Quan said he believed that the Governor’s visit to Vietnam will contribute to strengthen the two countries’ cooperation, which is entering a new era with the establishment of the comprehensive partnership during President Truong Tan Sang’s visit to the US in July.

He noted that with its strength in agricultural production and hi-tech application in agriculture, Vermont can cooperate with HCM City in the field as well as in science-technology, culture and social affairs.-VNA
