An Australian delegation headed by Deputy Governor Willem Westra van Holthe is in Ho Chi Minh City to seek ways to promote agro-aquatic collaboration with the southern city. 

Meeting the guest on April 23, Deputy Chairman of the municipal People’s Committee Tat Thanh Cang said various Australian official development assistance programmes have yielded significant achievements, particularly in infrastructure and in the construction of bridges in the Mekong Delta over the past 10 years.
Ho Chi Minh City and the Australian government have also developed a healthy relationship in trading food and agriculture, he added.
In return, the Deputy Governor, who is also Minister for the northern territory’s Infrastructure and Regional Development, praised the Vietnam-Australia friendship over the past 40 years, which has expanded through numerous collaborative programmes.
Westra van Holthe reiterated that the Australian government and its Northern territory appreciate their relationship with Vietnamese partners and will seek to broaden collaboration in agro-aquatics thus strengthening the bilateral relationship.
