Liem held that the two localities boast high potential of cooperation, saying that Rheinland Pfalz state could support HCM City in some areas that the city is focusing on, including pharmaceuticals and biotechnology. He added once the free trade agreement between Vietnam and the Eurasian Economic Union takes effect, the partnership between the two localities will have abundant chances to expand. He also suggested that the German side strengthen cooperation in coping with challenges in high-tech agriculture and eco-agriculture as well as share experience in developing support industry in the city.

Mr. Wissing said that his visit has created a good chance for the state’s businesses to seek partnerships with their peers in Ho Chi Minh City, while providing more opportunities for the two localities to step up collaboration in economy, education and tourism.
