(QNO) - Chairman of the Quang Nam provincial People’s Committee Le Tri Thanh had a working session with Sarah Hooper - Consul General of Australia in Ho Chi Minh city on the afternoon of November 23.
On behalf of Quang Nam’s leaders, Chairman Le Tri Thanh thanked Sarah Hooper for her sentiments towards Quang Nam.

In particular, Quang Nam is now one of the provinces with budget contributions to the Central Government.
Quang Nam is resolute in sustainable development in industry, tourism, and agriculture.
The province also pays much attention to environmental protection and poverty alleviation in mountainous areas.
Currently, Quang Nam is one of three key localities, along with Da Nang city and Quang Ngai province, in Central Vietnam and Central Highlands.
The province is planning its development strategies until 2050, especially long-term and short-term plans which need the help from Australian authorities.

Besides, Quang Nam expected Sarah Hooper to support the province to establish cooperative relations with Australian partners in environmental protection, healthcare system improvement, tourism development, agricultural export, education and training.
Australian Consul Genral Sarah Hooper believed in the provincial potential based on which Quang Nam and Australian partners can establish cooperative relations. She also promised to facilitate Quang Nam’s visit to Australia next year.
