Grete Løchen, the Ambassador of Norway to Vietnam, had a meeting with Nguyen Xuan Cuong, Minister of Agriculture and Rural Development of Vietnam on Tuesday, 19 March 2019.
The Ambassador underlined effective bilateral relations between Vietnam and Norway over the past 30 years since it began in the early 1970s. She also affirmed that Norway’s government intended to continually promote bilateral relations with Vietnam especially in the field of fishery and marine resources.
“Norway and the Norwegian companies are willing to share experiences, expertise and technologies with Vietnam to develop a marine aquaculture industry in a sustainable way” said the Ambassador.
Agreeing with Grete Lochen, Nguyen Xuan Cuong said “Norway is a power in the marine aquaculture area, and Vietnam sees Norway as a strategic partner in the implementation of its National Marine Aquaculture Strategy.”
But there are a lot of works that need to do to enhance the strategy between two sides, he added.
In near future, Norway and Vietnam will have another meeting to discuss and assure that Vietnam is ready to attend the Aqua Nor, Seafood Trade Fair, that will be held in Norway in August 2019.
