Vietnam, Germany bolster agricultural cooperationUpdate: 1/24/2014
The Vietnamese delegation’s recent visit to Germany and the upcoming tour of Vietnam by delegates from Bavarian state are expected to further boost bilateral cooperation in agriculture, biology, and technology transfer.
Vietnamese Ambassador to Germany Nguyen Thi Hoang Anh has made the statement at a recent meeting in Berlin between the two sides.
At the meeting, Martin Neumeyer Deputy Minister of Food, Agriculture and Forestry from Bavarian said the German state takes much interest in agricultural cooperation with Vietnam, adding that he hopes the Vietnam tour in September by Minister of Food, Agriculture and Forestry Helmut Brunner will further boost bilateral cooperation.
Do Nang Vinh, Vice Director of the Agriculture Genetics Institute, said despite recent achievements in agriculture, it will be hard for Vietnam’s agriculture science to develop without technical assistance in the coming time.
He voiced his hope to set up an effective cooperation mechanism with German businesses and scientists in the sector.
During the visit to Germany, the Vietnamese delegation led by Le Van Tam, Chairman of the Lam Son Sugarcane Refinery Company, also visited Saxony State’s Mittelsachsen district and signed an agreement on agriculture and new energy training.
