A delegation from the Mekong Delta province of Tien Giang, led by provincial Party Secretary Tran The Ngoc, has recently joined a series of meetings with senior local officials while visiting Maputo province in Mozambique.

In a bid to strengthen the sides’ multifaceted affiliation, the delegation met with Governor Raimundo Maico Diomba, who praised their goodwill and emphasised great cooperation potential between the two localities.

He expressed his wish for Tien Giang to support Maputo’s rice cultivation and aquatic farming sectors.

The Governor also pledged to create favourable conditions for Vietnamese enterprises to increase their investment in his province.

Ngoc, who is also member of the Party Central Committee, had a working session with Sergio Pantie, head of the Frelimo Party’s Central Committee for Organisation, to discuss measures to boost cooperation between the two parties and promote ties between the two countries’ localities.

Pantie stated that the traditional ties between the two parties have laid the foundation for comprehensive collaboration between the two countries and localities.

He lauded the development progress that Tien Giang has made so far and asked for further bilateral experience exchanges and technology transfers to take place via future joint projects.

During their four-day Mozambique visit, which ended on June 3, Tien Giang’s delegates visited the Vietnam Embassy and gathered with the Vietnamese expatriates and business communities living in the country.

Tien Giang and Maputo provinces established their cooperation during the visit of Mozambiquean Prime Minister Aires Boniface to Tien Giang in September 2010.

Tien Giang authorities inked a memorandum of understanding on cooperation with the Mozambiquean Ministry of Fisheries and a similar pact with Maputo province in terms of agricultural production and aquatic-farming technology transfer.-VNA
