A delegation of leading enterprises from Richmond, a coastal city in western Canada - led by Councilor Chak Au - visited HCM City on Friday to seek co-operation opportunities.
As one of Canada's economic centers, Richmond is strong in high-tech industries, with more than 100 enterprises operating in those fields, Chak Au said.
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 favorable environment for investment.
Tran Vinh Tuyen, deputy chairman of HCM City People's Committee, said the city always creates favorable 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 co-operation agreements as soon as possible. — VNS
