The 10th Cooperation Conference between Vietnamese and French Localities will be organized in the Mekong Delta’s Can Tho city from September 14 to 16, attracting 200 representatives from France and 300 from Vietnam.
French Ambassador to Vietnam, H.E. Jean Noel Poirier, said that the conference will provide opportunities for the two countries to promote cooperation in economics, tourism, education, healthcare, the environment, climate change, agro-fishery, and urban development.
Many events will be held on the sidelines of the conference, such as the Vietnam - France cultural week from September 12 - 18, the Vietnam - France International Fair from September 15 - 17, and a roundtable on trade promotion between the two countries on September 15.
The conference was organized for the first time in 1989 when Hanoi and Ile de France, a region of France, established a relationship. Since then the conference has been held every two or three years to promote the traditional friendship between the two countries.
