The Mekong Delta province of Kien Giang’s People’s Committee on October 31 held a working session with officials and businesspeople from several localities of Thailand and Cambodia to discuss measures to boost their tourism and trade links.

The Thai guests came from Trat, Chanthaburi, Chonburi and Rayong provinces, while on the Cambodian side were representatives from Kep, Kampot, Sihanouk and Kohrong provinces.

At the event, Kien Giang signed a cooperation agreement with Trat province’s authority on tourism and agriculture development.

Accordingly, the two localities agreed to create favourable conditions for their enterprises to seek and establish partnership in providing tours by air, seaway and road from Kien Giang to Thailand’s eastern provinces such as Trat and Chanthaburi.

The two provinces also reached agreement to boost connection in producing shrimp fry in Kien Giang and share their experience in restructuring agricultural sector, processing, preserving and consuming farm products.

The cooperation is a good chance to promote specific tourism products of each locality, thus creating multilateral links in the field, said Le Khac Ghi, Vice Chairman of Kien Giang Province People’s Committee.-VNA
