At a visit to Thanh Le Import-Export and Trading Co. and Trung Nguyen Coffee Co., famous for its G7 instant coffee, PM Lowassa and the delegation expressed their special interest in Viet Nam's collecting, advertising, processing and exporting coffee and cashew.
PM Lowassa was very surprised and wanted to learn why Viet Nam holds the title as the world’s second-largest coffee exporter while Viet Nam began its coffee production half a century later than Tanzania.
PM Lowassa said, “I am really inspired by you as having a new idea on how we could cooperate with each other for the two countries' economic growth.”
Earlier on the tour, the delegation paid a visit to factories of wounded soldiers. PM Lowassa expressed his deep concern about earnings, working and living conditions of these workers, who are mostly wounded soldiers and handicapped people.
PM Lowassa sincerely appreciated successes of the Wounded Soldier July 27 Co. He said, “What impresses me most is the way you have made full use of labor ability and your idea of creating conditions for the handicapped to work, to join in the national development and to run their own factories so that they can make significant contributions to the country.”
PM Lowassa’s wife and his entourage were very interested in and bought various handicrafts, fine art products and lacquer paintings of the company.
