High-tech agriculture, wind power, solar energy, processing and manufacturing industry, and education and training will be priority cooperation fields between Vietnamese and Canadian businesses in the coming time.

This information was revealed by VCCI Vice President Hoang Quang Phong at a working meeting with the Embassy Connections Canada (ECC) on October 17 in Hanoi. The ECC delegation, led by ECC Chairman Gerald Sherman, paid a working visit to Vietnam from October 15 to October 20, 2019.

At the reception meeting, Vice President Hoang Quang Phong welcomed the Vietnam visit by the Embassy Connections Canada. He affirmed that since the official establishment of diplomatic relations, the Vietnam-Canada relationship has continuously grown in all fields. This meeting was an opportunity for the two sides to exchange and learn about potential fields, elevating Vietnam-Canada relations in general and the two business communities in particular.

He hoped that after the visit, with updated information, ECC members can help Vietnam connect with Canadian organizations and businesses and enhance mutual cooperation in many fields. Specifically, high-tech agriculture, wind power, solar energy, and processing and manufacturing industry are areas of priority and stimulation for Canadian businesses in the near future.

For his part, Mr. Gerald Sherman thanked VCCI for helping the delegation to implement visiting programs and plans in Vietnam. He said that the purpose of the delegation to Vietnam is to seek and update market information and policies on investment stimulation, and seek business cooperation opportunities for Canadian businesses. In 2015, ECC had a working meeting at VCCI and was impressed with the information shared.

During this Vietnam visit, the ECC delegation also planned to work with the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, the Vietnam Women's Union, the Ministry of Health, and the Ministry of Education and Training, and explore Vietnam's cultural heritages.
