March 08, 2024

CẦN THƠ — Authorities of Cần Thơ and a delegation from Germany’s Wernigerode city led by Mayor Tobias Kascha agreed to strengthen cooperation in various fields, with a focus on sustainable green tourism, during a working session in the Mekong Delta city on March 8. Vice Chairman of the municipal People's Committee Dương Tấn Hiền said Cần Thơ boasts a strong agricultural sector, with 80% of its land for farming (nearly 115,000 ha). Hiền emphasised the mutual benefits of increased agricultural cooperation between Wernigerode and Cần Thơ, saying that it aligns perfectly with Cần Thơ's strategic focus on developing its services- tourism. Wernigerode, like Cần Thơ, prioritises tourism as a key economic driver, he said, noting the German city's extensive experience in sustainable green tourism models. He expressed his willingness to share this expertise with Cần Thơ while learning from the Mekong Delta city's successful models, particularly those focusing on green tourism adaptable to climate change.
