Officials from the Mekong Delta city of Can Tho and Iran’s northern province of Mazandaran have signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) on cooperation in agriculture, cultural delegation exchanges, and tourism.
The signing ceremony took place during the working visit to Mazandaran by Vice Chairman of the Can Tho municipal People’s Committee Dao Anh Dung from August 10-13.
Under the MoU, the two localities will introduce their partner’s potential in the fields of agriculture, economics, tourism, and science to local business communities via the media.
Mazandaran leaders expressed their hope to collaborate with the Mekong Delta city and Vietnamese businesses, especially in rice farming, poultry breeding, and trade of chicken, beef and lamb.
Governor Fallah said he will send a delegation to Can Tho to study the implementation of cooperation contents as specified in the MoU.
On August 13, the Can Tho official also signed a MoU with Bobby Batmanghelidj & Associates, an Iranian business consultant company, on trilateral cooperation on growing rice in Can Tho using Japanese technology and capital to export to Iran.
During his visit, Vice Chairman Dung had working sessions with leaders of Iranian departments of agriculture, seafood, cultural heritage, industry, mining and trade, economics and finance.
