DA NANG (VNS)— The central city of Da Nang and Thailand's Khon Kaen Province yesterday signed a Letter of Intent to establish co-operation in tourism, education, culture, investment and trade.

Da Nang, which is situated in the central region of Viet Nam and Khon Kaen, at the end of the East-West Economic Corridor linking Myanmar, Thailand, Laos and Viet Nam, also agreed to boost investment and trade via the East-West Economic Corridor.

They have seen modest trade exchanges in previous years. Their export-import turnover was about US$31.2 million in 2012. Only one company from Thailand has so far invested in the central city, while three enterprises have opened representative offices in Da Nang.

Da Nang University also officially included the Thai language in its curriculum in 2006.

Da Nang hosted 3.1 million tourists last year, of which 750,000 were foreigners. Only 45,000 tourists from Thailand visited the central city and other destinations in the central region. — VNS
