HA NOI (VNS) — Sri Lanka's Minister of Industry and Commerce, Rishad Badiutheen, has asked Vietnamese exporters to supply 15,000 tonnes of rice to his country.
The minister made the suggestion to Minister of Industry and Trade Vu Huy Hoang during talks in Ha Noi on Wednesday.
Both sides agreed to establish a subcommittee on trade and speed up the realisation of a memorandum of understanding on oil and gas.
These activities will make it easier for the Vietnam National Oil and Gas Group and the Vietnam National Petroleum Group to work closely with their Sri Lankan partners.
Sri Lanka is now the 65th biggest investor in Viet Nam with 10 projects worth over $14 million. Viet Nam has, however, yet to set up any projects in Sri Lanka. — VNS
