The Mekong Delta Economic Cooperation forum 2008, which was held in Can Tho City Saturday, focused on development of transport infrastructure in the delta region. 

The organizers were the Government’s steering board for the delta region, the Ministry of Industry and Commerce, and the National Committee on Economic Cooperation.

The main programs included a conference on transport infrastructure development, a conference on promoting regional cooperation, an exhibition on achievements and investment opportunities in transport infrastructure in Viet Nam and Can Tho, and a conference of leaders of Mekong Delta provinces and cities and relevant ministries and services.

The forum organizers will gather opinions and proposals made for the event for the Government to handle investment requirements of transport infrastructure in the region.

Next year’s forum will be held in An Giang Province, with the theme being human resources development for the Mekong Delta.
