The provincial People's Committee vice chairman Cao Van Trong delivered this statement during an investment-trade promotion workshop in Guangzhou on Sunday.
During the event, Trong also lauded Ben Tre's advantages in terms of geographical location, favourable transport, young and skilled workforce and a transparent investment environment.
