At the meeting with the SK Group delegation, Hieu emphasised that the formation and development of a green hydrogen ecosystem by SK Group in the city is suitable because Can Tho is located in the heart of the Mekong Delta region, adding that its infrastructure for green hydrogen production in Cần Thơ will create a premise to attract investment to the city and the entire region.

Lee Dong-uk, the group’s senior advisor, briefed the host on the role of green hydrogen, the global green hydrogen market outlook, and the use of hydrogen in building a clean energy economy in the future.

Meanwhile, at a meeting with representatives from the Singaporean company, Hiếu said that the city is calling for investments in areas like water treatment and supply for daily activities and wastewater treatment plants in new industrial zones and clusters, especially in the Vietnam – Singapore Industrial Park in Cần Thơ (VSIP Can Tho).
