At the meeting, City Party Chief Nguyen Thien Nhan said that 15 projects with total capital of US$ 57 million which have been invested in Ho Chi Minh City seem not to be adequate compared to the cooperative potentiality between the two sides.
However, the city party chief highly appreciated strong points of the partner in agriculture sector, hoping that Vietnam and New Zealand would continue strengthening trade, tourism development and export & import cooperation of agricultural products.
The New Zealand ambassador agreed with the share of the HCMC's leader adding that education was an important sector to connect the two countries in the previous years and being strengthened further in the upcoming time.
New Zealand wished to promote trade cooperation with Ho Chi Minh City in particular and stable cooperation between the two nations in general in the next time.
On the same day, Chairman of the HCMC People’s Committee received Premier of Ontario (Cannada) Kathleen Wynne.
