– A delegation from the northern province of Vinh Phuc visited France from December 11-13 to promote investment and seek cooperation opportunities with French localities.

The delegation, led by Secretary of the provincial Party Committee Hoang Thi Thuy Lan, worked with the Economic, Social, and Environmental Council (CESE) as well as leaders of the north-western Normandy region and Ecole de Management de Normadie (the Normandy Management Training School) to introduce Vinh Phuc’s investment advantages and potential.

The Vinh Phuc representatives called for investment in the fields of mechanical manufacturing, electronic technology, telecommunications, new materials, farm produce processing, food, education, urban development, clean agriculture, and infrastructure.

The delegation asked France to support programmes transferring Frend advanced technologies into Vietnam as well as promoting cultural and social exchanges between Vinh Phuc and French provinces.

The two sides are also expected to share experiences and initiatives in reforming and orienting public policies, environmental protection, climate change adaptation, and waste treatment, as well as cooperation in training high-quality human resources.

Eveline Duhamel, chairwoman of the CESE national territorial sustainable planning board, highlighted the sound traditional friendship between Vietnam and France over the past few years and pledged to further promote the bilateral relationship.

On behalf of leaders from the Normandy region, Serge Tougard expressed his hope of increasing exchanges between Vietnamese and French businesses.

He affirmed to work with the region’s economic development board to encourage key local businesses to cooperate with Vietnamese firms in farm produce processing, aviation, pharmacy, and industrial product manufacturing from petroleum and nuclear energy.

Elian Pilvin, Director of Operations and Business Development at the Normandy Management Training School, said the school aims to tighten cooperation with Vietnamese universities to transfer the most suitable training programmes and increase the quality of training.

He also showed his interest in the socio-economic development situation in Vinh Phuc and hoped to visit the province soon to study its training models for future cooperation.–VNA
