A workshop aimed at promoting technical cooperation in agriculture and environmental protection between Can Tho city and Hiroshima prefecture, Japan was held on July 16.

Can Tho municipal People’s Committee Vice Chairman Dao Anh Dung said that Japan is a developed industrial country, which has modern agriculture and advantages in applying high-technology in production which can benefit agriculture in the region.

Can Tho specifically wants to boost cooperation with Hiroshima prefecture in the application of high technology to cattle-breeding, cultivation, aquaculture, animal quarantine, and irrigation management, Dung said.

This will greatly benefit agriculture’s contribution to the region’s economic growth and social welfare by expanding production and improving the quality of agricultural products, Dung added.
