At the reception, Wynne said Ontario is ready to cooperate and share experience in training teachers and improving general education. It successfully applied public-private partnership in resolving the problem of urban infrastructure construction, and it is ready to share this experience with HCM City.

In turn, Mr. Phong said Ho Chi Minh City wants to step up cooperation in general education and vocational training with the Canadian province of Ontario.

He considered his guest’s first official visit to Viet Nam as an illustration of the Canadian Government and Ontario’s interest in the Southeast Asian nation and HCM City.

Economic cooperation between HCM City and Ontario remains modest compared to its potential, he said, noting that there are many fields in which they have opportunities to reinforce cooperation, especially the areas matching Ontario’s strength and HCM City’s demand like information technology, infrastructure building, and automobile assembly.

HCM City pledges to provide the best possible conditions for Ontario investors to learn about and invest in the city, thus bringing successes to Canadian businesses and contributing to local development, he added.
