CAN THO – The Netherlands will organize a seminar themed “Sustainable Development for the Mekong Delta” in collaboration with Vietnam as part of the “Netherlands Day in Can Tho,” set to take place on November 9, heard a press conference in Can Tho City on October 26.

“The seminar is aimed at partly implementing the resolution (Government’s Resolution 120) on developing the Mekong Delta region sustainably and adapting it to climate change,” Anouk Baron, Second Secretary for Political, Press and Cultural Affairs at the Embassy of the Kingdom of the Netherlands in Vietnam, said. She expected many enterprises, scientists, social organizations and representatives from relevant departments and agencies to attend the seminar to contribute to the success in implementing the resolution.

Anouk said that the Netherlands would be willing to help Vietnam boost the Mekong Delta region’s economy through agricultural programs which have successfully been conducted in the Netherlands with a low terrain like the Mekong Delta.

Anouk also noted that it is necessary to turn challenges such as flooding and salt penetration into opportunities and exploit positive factors from challenges to further develop the Mekong Delta.

The “Netherlands Day in Can Tho”, scheduled for November 9 and 10, is co-organized by the Consulate General of the Netherlands, Can Tho City's government and the Union of Friendship Organizations in Can Tho on the occasion of the 45th anniversary of diplomatic ties between Netherlands and Vietnam.

In addition to the seminar, a delegation of Dutch enterprises will make on-site visits to some agricultural projects in Can Tho City, and participate in a study-abroad workshop at Can Tho University.
