NDO/VNA – The Central Highlands province of Dak Lak hopes to seek Russian partners in high-tech agriculture, post-harvest processing and tourism, said Chairman of the Provincial People’s Committee Pham Ngoc Nghi on September 25.

Speaking at an investment promotion conference in Moscow, Nghi said that Dak Lak has been dubbed as Vietnam’s coffee capital, and has favourable conditions for high-tech agriculture and processing industry.

Furthermore, the province boasts huge potential for tourism development, he said, noting that Dak Lak is one of the cradles of the cultural space of Gong of Tay Nguyen, which has been recognised by UNESCO as a masterpiece of the oral and intangible heritage of humanity.

Nghi called on the Vietnamese Embassy in Russia to facilitate connectivity between Dak Lak and Russian partners, contributing to the socio-economic development in the province.

Vietnamese Ambassador to Russia Ngo Duc Manh highlighted the development of the Vietnam-Russia relationship, and expressed his belief that with its great potential, Dak Lak will become an attractive investment destination for Russian firms.

Bui Van Hoa, Vice President of the Vietnamese Business Association in Russia, said key products of Dak Lak are sought-after in Russia, especially in the context that the country is facing embargoes imposed by western countries.

On this occasion, Dak Lak screened documentaries featuring the potential of the province and the Central Highlands, and introduced its specialties, such as coffee and other agricultural products.
