SYDNEY — The Central Highlands province of Đắk Lắk held a seminar in Sydney on Wednesday to introduce its strengths and potential to Australian businesses.
Addressing the event, Vice Chairman of the provincial People’s Committee Võ Văn Cảnh said that Đắk Lắk is a land of basaltic soil which is suitable for industrial plants with high economic value such as coffee, rubber, peppercorn and herbal plants.
With its advantages in weather and land conditions, Đắk Lắk hopes to export to Australia its strong products such as coffee, peppercorn, cashew, banana, avocado and durian, said Cảnh.
He also called for Australian investors to seek business opportunities in Đắk Lắk’s potential sectors such as agriculture, industry, trade and education.
Cảnh underlined that the seminar is a first step for the cooperation and long-term partnership between Australia and Đắk Lắk.
Meanwhile, Graham Kinder, Vice Chairman of the Australia-Việt Nam Business Council (AVBC), said that over the past 20 years, Australian firms have worked to build mutual understanding between the business communities of Việt Nam in Australia.
He pledged that the AVBC is willing to support Vietnamese enterprises to partner with their Australian peers. The council can assist Đắk Lắk and Buôn Ma Thuột City in various areas, he added.
On the occasion, the Australian side introduced Goulburn city in New South Wales, which has similar geographic and weather conditions as Buôn Ma Thuột City.
During their stay, the Đắk Lắk delegation had a working session with leaders of Goulburn on Thursday to discuss the formation of partnership between the city and Buôn Ma Thuột City of Đắk Lắk. — VNS
