PRAGUE — A delegation from Gia Lai Province, led by Võ Ngọc Thành, chairman of the provincial People’s Committee, is visiting the Czech Republic to call for investment and promote trade and tourism.
At a working session with Borivoj Minar, vice president the Economic Chamber of the Czech Republic, in Prague on Monday, Thành introduced his locality’s economic potential and investment incentives.
Located in the north of the Central Highlands, with temperate climate, Gia Lai Province has favourable conditions for developing short and long-term industrial plants and livestock farming, Thành said, adding that it is now home to 79,700ha of coffee, nearly 103,000ha of rubber, over 17,000ha of cashew and 14,500ha of pepper.
The province has great potential to develop tourism and services as it boasts of numerous historical and cultural relic sites and famous landscapes, especially the Space of the Gong Culture, recognised by UNESCO as a world cultural heritage.
Gia Lai is calling for investment in 61 projects in infrastructure, agro-fishery-forestry, education and culture, as well as sports and tourism, Thành said.
Borivoij Minar lauded Gia Lai Province’s selection of the Czech Republic as a priority partner for investment and co-operation.
He also spoke highly of the province’s economic potential, saying the Economic Chamber of the Czech Republic will provide Czech firms with consultancy on trade and investment opportunities in Gia Lai.
He also expressed support for economic-trade co-operation between localities of both countries.
During the four-day visit which continues until March 30, the Gia Lai delegation plans to work with economic agencies of the Czech Republic and the Vietnamese People Association in the host country. — VNS
