The desire was expressed by Dutch Agriculture Minister Sharon Dijiksma during her meeting with the Party Central Committee’s Economic Commission in Hanoi on June 17.

She said she is accompanied with many businesses during her current visit to Vietnam, adding that they want to cooperate with Vietnamese partners in agriculture as part the two sides’ deeper link in this field.

During the meeting, the minister briefed the commission’s leaders of outcomes of the Dutch Prime Minister’s visit to Vietnam, saying that the two PMs signed an agreement on strategic partnership on agriculture and food security and agreed on the effective implementation of the document during the trip.
