Vice Chairman of the Da Nang city People’s Committee Tran Chi Cuong briefed the guests on the city’s socio-economic situation, saying it has been identified as the growth nucleus of Vietnam’s central key economic region.

According to the official, Da Nang has established cooperative ties with 48 localities of 22 countries and territories worldwide, noting it has maintained friendship and official cooperation with a number of Chinese localities, including Shandong.

In 2017, the Chinese Consulate General in Da Nang was put into operation, serving as a bridge between the city and Chinese localities and partners, he said.

Vice Chairman Cuong emphasised that Da Nang wishes for more intensive and closer relations with Chinese localities, especially in the areas where the sides have strengths and share similarities like tourism and navigation.

For his part, Vice Governor Song said Shandong boasts strengths in both agriculture and industry, and suggested the two sides promote Party diplomacy and exchange experience in Party building, thus contributing to boosting the relations between Vietnam and China in the new era.

The official held that Shandong and Da Nang share similarities in economy, culture, tourism, trade and high-tech, saying he hopes that the visit will help forge their bilateral collaboration in the coming time.

Apart from the good political ties, economic cooperation and trade between Da Nang and Chinese localities are growing, he continued.

China is running 93 projects in the Vietnamese central locality with a total investment capital of 118 million USD, mainly in catering services, electronics import consultation, and silicon product manufacturing.

Last year, Da Nang exported 47 million USD worth of goods to China, and imported 205 million USD.

In the year, China was the second biggest source of tourists to Da Nang, with 179,000 arrivals.
