Chairman of the Ho Chi Minh City People’s Committee Le Hoang Quan has emphasised that his city will create the most favourable conditions for Israeli enterprises’ production and business investment in the locality.

At a November 4 reception for visiting Israeli Minister of Agriculture and Rural Development Yair Shamir, Chairman Quan highly valued the outcomes of the cooperation in agriculture between Vietnam and Israel, and HCM City and Israeli partners in particular.

Quan also said he believes that Israel will continue to establish development cooperation programmes with the country and the city as well.

The Vietnamese city and Israel have great cooperation potential and can further intensify their mutual collaboration, especially in economics, he added.

For his part, Yair Shamir voiced his wish that his country and HCM City will also promote their cooperation in various fields other than agriculture, such as education, healthcare and information and technology.

At the reception, the two sides expressed pleasure at their flourishing cooperation ties, notably the implementation of a project on dairy cow breeding in Binh Chanh district, which will lay a sound foundation for deploying other projects in the time to come.-VNA
