CÀ MAU — The Embassy of Israel in Việt Nam and the People's Committee of Cà Mau Province has signed an economic co-operation agreement.
Under the agreement, both sides will facilitate businesses in Israel and Cà Mau in experience exchanges and co-operation opportunities. The two sides will also step up technology transfer and promote each other's products.
Co-operative areas include water treatment, aquaculture, irrigation, entrepreneurship and corporate governance.
“Israeli water technologies are extremely relevant in the Mekong Delta. Together with Cà Mau provincial leaders, we agreed to strongly support co-operation between Israeli and Cà Mau business sectors,” said Israeli Ambassador to Việt Nam Nadav Eshcar.
