HÀ NỘI — The eighth conference on economic corridor co-operation among five cities and provinces from Việt Nam and China will take place in the northern city of Hải Phòng on November 21-24.
The targeted Vietnamese cities are Hà Nội and Hải Phòng and the provinces are Lào Cai and Quảng Ninh, as well as the Chinese province of Yunnan.
This meeting will focus on assessing the implementation of the results achieved, difficulties and obstacles in carrying out the contents of the memorandum of understanding signed at the seventh conference. Besides this, the event will also unify the effective and practical co-operation, set concrete directions and find appropriate solutions to further promote cooperation among provinces and cities and construct the Kunming-Lào Cai-Hà Nội-Hải Phòng-Quảng Ninh economic corridor to become a model of effective cooperation between Việt Nam and China.
The Economic Corridor conference is one of the initiatives aimed at creating a basis for friendly exchange, especially in terms of the economy, among localities in particular and between the two countries in general.
Since the first conference held in Hà Nội in September 2004, the cooperation between the five localities has achieved significant progress in many aspects, such as actively promoting cooperation and connection between provinces, investment trade development, construction of joint trade centres, and creating favourable conditions for upgrading transport, thus contributing to the development of sustainable relations between the two sides.
The event will take place at the Hải Phòng City Convention Centre. — VNS
