 Netherlands And Vietnam Partners To Enhance Sustainable Agriculture and Food Security Among Others

The Conference on the promulgation of the newly launched Mekong Delta Regional Master Plan chaired by Vietnam’s Prime Minister Pham Minh Chinh took place on 21 July, 2022 in the southern city of Can Tho, Viet Nam. The Vietnam’s first Integrated Regional Master Plan fits excellently in Viet Nam – Netherlands long-lasting bilateral relation, especially the two countries’ strategic partnerships in Water & Climate Change and Sustainable Agriculture and Food Security.

The Netherlands and the Mekong Delta are both vulnerable deltas with many similar challenges. The Netherlands is committed to continue to contribute to the bright future of the Mekong Delta.

More than 10 years ago, Vietnam requested the Netherlands to support the development of a Mekong Delta Plan. This plan was approved in 2013 and endorsed by the Vietnamese Government. It has been the basis and inspiration for Vietnamese Government’s Resolution 120 towards a sustainable delta that was approved in 2017. This year, Vietnam has set a milestone by approving the Mekong Delta Regional Integrated Master Plan providing (1) long term, (2) cross-sectoral (3) integrated planning to support and catalyse the social, economic and environmental development of the delta.

The master plan boosts investors’ confidence

Speaking at the Conference, Mr. Gabor Fluit, Vice President of the European Chamber of Commerce in Vietnam (EUROCHAM) and CEO of Royal De Heus Asia underlined the importance of the Regional Master Plan in the sustainable development of the Mekong Delta. Investing in inland waterway and seaports development will offer more opportunities to make Mekong Delta a regional agriculture business hub.

Mr. Fluit highlighted that the Mekong Delta regional master plan announced today will help foreign businesses and investors clearly understand the local government’s long-term vision and strategy. This will certainly make foreign investors having more confidence in their investment decision in the Mekong Delta.
