Tanzania: Vietnamese Plan to Boost Isles Agriculture Industry

VIETNAM deputy foreign Minister Nguyen Phuong Nga met with Zanzibar President Dr Ali Mohamed Shein, promising that his country shall support Zanzibar boost its rice production and fishing in the future.

The good news comes almost two years since Dr Shein visited that socialist country, where both countries agreed on strengthening bilateral cooperation, especially in economics, trade, agriculture and food security.

"Tourism and trade are other important areas needed for cooperation. We are happy that agreements between Zanzibar and Vietnam are becoming practical," Dr Shein said.

According to the press release signed by the Zanzibar State House press officer Mr Said Ameir, President Shein visited Vietnam in November 2012, when Vietnam willingly agreed to share its agricultural knowledge with Zanzibar and later sent its experts to inspect and identify areas of cooperation.

Phuong said that the two countries have enjoyed fruitful cooperation in bilateral frameworks, promising further Vietnam will share its experience in development model and food security.
