CẦN THƠ — India's TATA Group had a working session with the People’s Committee of Cần Thơ on business opportunities in agriculture in the Mekong Delta city.
TATA’s country director Gajanan Hujare said the group hoped for more support from the province to better introduce its agricultural equipment and technologies to local farmers.
TATA business manager Giang Quốc Cường said the group would focus on providing a wide range of products with new features at competitive prices to attract buyers.
TATA is one of the world’s top 10 providers of agricultural equipment and technologies, said Hujare.
The group has exported tractors to Việt Nam since 1980. It set up a representative office in Cần Thơ in 2014 and been active in the Mekong Delta market since last year.
The city’s vice chairman Nguyễn Thanh Dũng, for his part, pledged to provide TATA with the best conditions to do business in Việt Nam as the mechanisation of agriculture is one of the city’s priorities.
Cần Thơ now has more than 80 per cent of agricultural land using mechanised farming tools.
He urged the firm to adopt practical measures to bring benefits to farmers. — VNS
