Agreement with Vietnam for aquaculture projects
Starting next year a number of aquaculture projects will be run in the state of Falcon after signing agreements with the Vietnamese government.
According to Vietnam’s ambassador in Venezuela, Ngo Tien Dung, who is visiting the town of Mauroa de Falcon, his country will cooperate with this Venezuelan state on the development of this important economic activity.
The official toured strategic places, such as the south where there is potential for stocking and aquaculture in the dam Matícora.
Tien Dung also recalled that in 2009 a group of Vietnamese agricultural engineers travelled to Mauroa to study the soil for raising fish and shrimp.
“These are hard-working people, the natural conditions are ready, there is a great potential, such as the dam, the water resource, the people, the weather,” stated the diplomat.
“With the help of the state and the government, the people of Mauroa have the potential to work and live more happily,” he continued.
Furthermore, he commented that the two countries are similar as to their socialist plan and natural characteristics, AVN reported.
“Two brother countries, Vietnam and Venezuela, intend to work together and cooperate so they have signed macro agreements in the tourist, housing, aquaculture areas,” he concluded.
