Opportunity for Viet Nnam Seafood Exports to Singapore

25 February 2014

VIET NAM - Mr Ng Teck Hean, Singaporean Ambassador in Viet Nam has had a meeting with representatives from Ben Tre province to seek investment and cooperation opportunities in Viet Nam.

Singapore will cooperate with Viet Nam through training Vietnamese workforce and importing agro-fishery products. Vietnamese trainees will be trained in Hanoi or Singapore, reports Vasep.

Singapore is in high demand for agro-fishery products. The Singaporean importer spends $500,000 on importing seafood from Ben Tre province.

Ben Tre has many advantages in producing agro-fishery products. Thus, the province is calling investments from Singaporean enterprises so that local fishery products can be exported to third-party countries, the Ben Tre People's Committee Chairman said.

The province will give favourable conditions to facilitate Singaporean investors in importing local agro-fishery products and investing in many other sectors such as high-tech industrial park and ecological tourism in Ben Tre.

Ng Teck Hean welcomes that Ben Tre's authorities plan to organize a conference aiming to call investments into Ben Tre in Singapore in 2014.

Ng Teck Hean will actively introduce the potentialities and advantages of Ben Tre to Singaporean investors.

After taking up his appointment as Ambassador of Singapore to Viet Nam since August 2012, Ng Teck Hean has visited and sought cooperation and investment opportunities in 21 provinces including Ben Tre.
