The city of Ho Chi Minh and Toronto boast numerous cooperation opportunities, particularly in sharing urban development experience, as both are economic hubs of their respective countries, developing smart cities and also facing development challenges such as traffic congestion, he added.
Prior to the singing, the Toronto official had a meeting with Vice Chairman of the Ho Chi Minh City People’s Committee Tran Vinh Tuyen, who highlighted the strengthened Vietnam-Canada cooperation and friendship within the framework of their comprehensive, stable and long-term partnership.
Ho Chi Minh City and Toronto bear many common interests and cooperation opportunities.
Tuyen said the two countries have exchanged many Party and State delegations, tightened economic-trade links and signed bilateral agreements, which have created a foundation for intensifying friendship and cooperation between the countries as well as between the two cities.
Over the past years, Ho Chi Minh City has actively implemented cooperation activities with Canada, including Toronto, especially in investment and education such as the Canadian International School and the Vietnam Airlines Flight Training Centre.
The local official noted his city wants Toronto to step up friendship and cooperation in the fields that match Ho Chi Minh City’s interest and Toronto’s potential such as smart city building, education, and technology.
