Chak Au said being one of Canada’s economic centres, Richmond is strong in high-tech industries with more than 100 enterprises operating in those fields.
He said the city’s companies want to seek partners in commerce, hi-tech agriculture, education and training in HCM City, which has a dynamic and favourable environment for investment.
Tran Vinh Tuyen, Vice Chairman of HCM City People’s Committee, said the city always creates favourable conditions for foreign firms which want to invest in the city.
Noting that Richmond’s strong sectors match the city’s development priorities toward a green and modern city, the official expressed his hope that businesses from the two countries can reach specific cooperation agreements as soon as possible./.
