Mr. Patricio Arturo Becker Marshall agrees with the president 's opinion and believes that the cooperative relationship between the University and partners in Chilean partners will soon be accelerated and expanded.
Chile is a South American country, which has a diverse climate zone, and its agriculture also plays a significant role in the country’s economic development. The country has various well-known products and is a leading exporter worldwide in may products such as wine, fruits (grapes, cherries, etc.).
Vietnam and Chile have established their relationship for 50 years, always supporting and helping each other, however, the agricultural development of the two countries is not commensurate with their potentials. He hopes that the cooperation expansion between VNUA and Chilean partners contribute to strengthening their relationship.
