Speaking, the Chairman observed that the Niger Delta Region of Nigeria and the Red River Delta and Mekong Delta Regions of SR Vietnam have some geographical  and ecological similarities and would therefore benefit from each other's experience.

The Ambassador in his response shared thoughts with the Chairman on strategies utilized by the Vietnamese  government in the development of their coastal Regions whose terrains are very similar to the Niger Delta Region of Nigeria but currently export over 2million tons of rice yearly and is projected to increase to 3 million in 2018.

This engagement is therefore expected to stimulate the needed collaboration in achieving a pristine and economically  prosperous Niger Delta Region.
