Moscow (VNA) – Vietnamese Ambassador to Ukraine Nguyen Anh Tuan paid a working visit to Cherkasy province on October 8 to explore the potential for economic cooperation between this province and localities of Vietnam.

Cherkasy is located in a strategic location that connects eastern with western regions and northern with southern regions of Ukraine. It is situated on the banks of the Dnepr River with fertile black soils that are favourable for agriculture.

This province accommodates a number of food processing and poultry farming facilities. It is also known as a cultural, educational, tourism and industrial centre of Ukraine.

At a meeting during the trip, Ambassador Tuan and Cherkasy Governor Sergey I. Sergeychuk shared information on the advantages and potential for partnership in economy, science, education and tourism between Vietnamese localities and Cherkasy.

Tuan noted many successful Vietnamese entrepreneurs used to study and work in Ukraine, including Cherkasy, and they wish to return to invest and do business in this province.

Meanwhile, Sergeychuk spoke highly of Vietnam’s attainments in economic development and COVID-19 fight, affirming that favourable conditions will be created for Vietnamese firms to operate in Cherkasy.

On this occasion, the ambassador had a meeting with representatives of Vietnamese people in Cherkasy and presented the embassy’s gifts to the families affected by the COVID-19 pandemic and its subsequent economic crisis./.
