Agricultural co-operation between Viet Nam and the Netherlands under the public-private partnership (PPP) has recorded positive developments, according to the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development.
The ministry’s International Cooperation Department said the fisheries, cocoa and coffee industries have benefited the most from the co-operation. The Netherlands will help Viet Nam become a full member of the Western and Central Pacific Fisheries Commission (WCPFC). Both countries have agreed to seek funding for a programme to train quarantine officers and law experts concerning the European Union’s food safety rules and law.
The Netherlands has pledged to investment 300,000 euros ($407,940) over the 2010-12 period to improve the sustainability of tra and basa fish rearing in Viet Nam.
In addition, the Netherlands have proposed a programme on sustainable production and business development for Viet Nam’s coffee industry. Donors are expected to contribute 47 per cent of the 32 million euro programme to be carried out until 2012.
