The information was confirmed by Yagoub Mohamed Eltayed Ibrahim, Sudan Secretary of State for Agriculture and Forestry, during the second session of the Inter-Governmental Committee session held in Hanoi on October 11th.
Over the past 2 years since the first session of the committee, the two sides have built up and signed some important legal documents, including the Governmental memorandum of understanding on agricultural cooperation, an agreement on maritime transport, and an agreement on visa exemption for diplomatic passport and official passport holders, creating a foundation for expanding cooperation in the future.
During the second session, the two sides signed a memorandum of understanding on industrial cooperation, including the food processing industry; mechanical engineering; footwear production and textile production; and electronic device and equipment production.
The two sides also discussed signing some other agreements on finance, culture, education and agriculture cooperation.
Vietnamese Deputy Minister of Agriculture and Rural Development Vu Van Tam urged authorized agencies of the two countries to realize signed agreements.
The two sides agreed to encourage enterprises to join the markets and fairs of the others; exchange delegations to exploit information and study investment opportunities at fairs and talks; and increase the sharing of administration and tax information of each country.
