Last week, HCMC Department of Agriculture and Rural Development discussed specific plan about the trip to the Netherlands with 15 leading seed companies in the city.
After that, authorized agencies in the city, the Center for the Promotion of Imports from Developing Countries under the Netherlands’ Ministry of Foreign Affairs and the Netherlands Consulate General in HCMC have agreed to send the city's seed production companies to the Netherlands, he said.
The Netherlands is the world’s largest seed exporter, occupying 24 percent the global export value. Eight out of ten leading seed companies in the world headquarter or open subsidiaries in the country.
