The diplomat made the comment at a recent meeting with Deputy Minister of Agriculture and Rural Development Tran Thanh Nam in Hanoi to discuss the promotion of the bilateral trade of farm products.
Agreeing with his guest, Deputy Minister Nam expressed his belief in the nations achieving their 100-million-USD trade goal soon, particularly via strengthening farming collaboration in the time to come.
Transport between the sides presents a difficulty which should be tackled to facilitate regular interactions between their enterprises, Deputy Minister Nam said.
The official noted that he wanted to know more about the strong agricultural hubs of Mongolia.
The Mongolian Ambassador said the countries could team up to implement a project on rice cultivation, suggesting that Vietnam’s northern varieties are likely to suit Mongolia’s weather and soil conditions.
He also proposed a joint project on goat farming in Vietnam and a potential cooperation between the sides in leather processing for garment-textiles.
The Vietnam-Mongolia trade hit 80.2 million USD in 2021 and 25.9 million USD in the first four months of this year.
