A memorandum of understanding (MoU) on trade promotion was inked between the Ministry of Industry and Trade (MoIT) and the People’s Committee of southern An Giang province on December 26.

This is part of efforts to help the province realise its target of earning 1 billion USD from export in 2014.

Under the document, the MoIT will assist An Giang province in promoting trade in the country through fairs and conferences.

Both sides will work together to seek markets for local farm and aquatic products, which are An Giang’s competitive commodities.

The ministry will also provide An Giang’s enterprises with information on the export market development and demand to help them fully tap their strengths to speed up export.

Speaking at the event, MoIT Deputy Minister Nguyen Cam Tu underlined the significance of the MoU, expressing his belief that the ministry and An Giang province will cooperate effectively in the future.-VNA
