Vinh Long (VNA) – Authorities of the Mekong Delta province of Vinh Long held a working session with Seraco international education consulting company on June 6 to discuss trade and investment promotion with Australia.

Seraco General Director Dinh Van Vinh said apart from linking Vietnamese and Australian universities and colleges together, the company also serves as a bridge connecting businesses between the two countries.

As scheduled, Seraco will complete a project on displaying Vietnamese goods in Australia later this year. Following the display, the firm will set up a showroom for long-term advertisement of the goods in the country, thus making it easier for Vietnamese goods to navigate the market.

Vice Director of the provincial Department of Industry and Trade Vu Ngoc Tu said Vinh Long is strong in fisheries, high-tech farm produce  and handicrafts. In the near future, the department will work closely with Seraco to learn about regular exhibitions in Australia and its goods demand to submit a detailed trade promotion plan to the provincial authorities.

In the first quarter of this year, the province will hold a national-scale trade promotion conference, affording Australian investors a chance to connect with Vietnamese firms, he said.

Vice President of the provincial People’s Committee Lu Quang Ngoi said Vinh Long will support the company in working with local units, thus facilitating its role as a bridge between the province and Australia, especially in human resources training and trade promotion.-VNA
