Prague, March 28 (VNA) – A delegation from the Central Highlands province of Gia Lai led by Chairman of the provincial People’s Committee Vo Ngoc Thanh is visiting the Czech Republic to call for investment and promote trade and tourism.

At a working session with Borivoj Minar, Vice President the Economic Chamber of the Czech Republic in Prague on March 27, Thanh introduced his locality’s economic potential and investment incentives.

Located in the north of the Central Highlands with temperate climate, Gia Lai province holds favorable conditions for developing short- and long-term industrial plants and livestock farming, said Thanh, adding that it is now home to 79,700 ha of coffee, nearly 103,000 ha of rubber, over 17,000 ha of cashew and 14,500 ha of pepper.

The province has great potential to develop tourism and services as it boasts numerous historical and cultural relic sites, famous landscapes and especially the Space of the Gong Culture, which was recognised by UNESCO as a world cultural heritage of humanity 

Gia Lai is calling for investment in 61 projects in infrastructure, agro – fishery – forestry, education, culture, sports and tourism, Thanh said.

Borivoij Minar lauded Gia Lai province’s selection of the Czech Republic as a prioritised partner for investment and cooperation.

He spoke highly of the province’s economic potential, saying that the Economic Chamber of the Czech Republic will provide Czech firms with consultancy on trade and investment opportunities in Gia Lai.

He also expressed his support for economic-trade cooperation between localities of both countries.

During their four-day visit which runs through March 30, the Gia Lai delegation plans to work with economic agencies of the Czech Republic and the Vietnamese People Association in the host country.
