The construction of the 21-million-USD project was kickstarted in November last year at the Tra Noc industrial park with an area of 12,000 square meters.

It aims to build a research and development centre for farm produce and seafood processing and mechanical enginerering industries.

This will not only help the region promote its agriculture advantage but also support farmers to access advanced technology for high-quality products.

Managing director of the project Kim Hee Sup said the RoK will set up a Mekong Delta research institute in the country to promote exchanges between experts and students of the two sides.

Vice Chairman of the Can Tho People’s Committee Truong Quang Hoai Nam said the city welcomes and will give full legal support for Korean businesses to register for operation there.
