Japan’s Satake Corporation aims to invest in the Mekong Delta city of Can Tho’s agricultural equipment, General Director Nguyen Trong Hieu told municipal authorities on November 2.

Satake works on high-tech machinery for agriculture, from sowing to post-harvest preservation. It plans to introduce Can Tho to seed-split and drying equipment with a designed capacity of 30-120 tonnes per batch.

Municipal People’s Committee Vice Chairman Dao Anh Dung suggested Satake hold seminars to introduce products, support policies and technology transfers.

Can Tho will work closely with Satake to launch product displays, he said, adding that Satake should offer affordable prices to compete with Chinese and Thai rivals.-VNA
