At the May 29 meeting, Deputy Minister Tri told his host that the two countries have coordinated to research and develop food crops, with Vietnam sending many experts and technicians to support Mozambique. He said he hopes such joint work will be expanded based on each nation’s agricultural strength for mutual growth.
Thanking Vietnam’s help for Mozambique in not only farming but also education, health and telecommunications, Deputy Minister Banze lauded the effective support of Vietnamese experts and wished to learn more from the Southeast Asian nation’s agricultural experiences, particularly in processing cashew products, building and managing irrigation and drainage systems, and making use of available food crops to produce animal feed and develop the dairy industry.

Deputy Minister Tri affirmed that Vietnam is willing to assist and share experiences with Mozambique in terms of farming, processing, production, commercial product development, and the improvement of product quality based on the three important factors of irrigation, varieties and farming methods.
The Vietnamese Deputy Minister, who is visiting Mozambique to attend and chair the fourth meeting of the Vietnam-Mozambique Inter-Governmental Committee, noted that farming cooperation is an important topic of the event.
