The workshop aimed to introduce research related to hi-tech agriculture, production of safe vegetables, and potential projects in Gia Lai province while creating an environment to connect Australia with Gia Lai investors to participate in the global value chain within the framework of the Comprehensive and Progressive Agreement for Trans-Pacific Partnership (CPTPP).

Researchers from both Vietnam and Australia presented their research on packaging technology, the development path of Vietnam and essential values for Australia, and the essential values between Vietnam and Australia through the CPTPP in order to call on investors to Gia Lai province.

Chairman of Gia Lai provincial People's Committee Vo Ngoc Thanh expressed his wish that through the workshop investors will come to Gia Lai seeking business opportunities as it is home to enormous untapped potentials and strengths.

Gia Lai is the second-largest province of Vietnam and has five national highway routes to connect with coastal central and southern central provinces of Vietnam. The province is also served by the Le Thanh International Border Gate to link to the Triangle Development of Vietnam-Laos-Cambodia.

At the event, the Australia - Vietnam Business Council signed Memoranda of Understanding (MoU) with Hoang Anh Gia Lai group and Gia Lai's An Khe town on the project of producing organic gac (Momordica cochinchinensis) powder and safe vegetables.
