London (VNA) – A high-level delegation from the northwestern province of Son La, led by Chairman of the provincial People’s Committee Hoang Quoc Khanh, recently had meetings with authorities of Newhaven town in the UK’s East Sussex county.

The delegation worked with Mayor of Newhaven Graham Amy, as well as representatives of the Newhaven Chamber of Commerce and the local management board of industrial projects.

The two sides exchanged experience in administrative management and investment attraction.

Khanh took the occasion to introduce Son La’s potential, expressing his hope that the Vietnamese province and Newhaven would seek opportunities for future cooperation.

The Newhaven representatives said the town is willing to support Son La firms in business integration in line with EU standards.

Congratulating the Vietnamese province on successfully exporting its mangoes to the UK market, they expressed their goodwill to help Son La boost export of its farm produce to the market and introduce British investors to explore investment opportunities in Son La.

While in Newhaven, the delegation also visited the memorial site dedicated to late President Ho Chi Minh, who once worked on ferries traveling between Newhaven port and France’s Dieppe port during his time in the UK./.
