Mr. Do The Trinh, Director of Human Resources, warmly welcomes the delegation’s visit and their collaboration in the Snoul and Koun Mom regions in Cambodia. THACO AGRI strives to strengthen the connection between the university and the enterprise by offering opportunities for students to intern and participate in the training process. Currently, many Tra Vinh University alumni hold important positions within the integrated zones.

During the meeting, Dr. Phan Quoc Nghia, Vice Rector of Tra Vinh University, expresses gratitude to THACO AGRI for providing equipment to the university and for their ongoing support in education, internship opportunities, and guidance for students. The university plans to continue closely collaborating with THACO AGRI to facilitate internships for students in Cambodian integrated zones and to implement various agreements between the two institutions.

Mr. Phan Tiem, Rector of THACO College, hopes that this visit will allow the university to better understand the scale and development direction of THACO AGRI in Cambodia and identify potential areas for cooperation. This lays the foundation for both sides to expand collaboration in various fields, including agriculture and aquaculture, engineering and technology, economics, language, and culture, leveraging their respective strengths.

During this trip, the delegation visits Snoul and Koun Mom Integrated Zones in Cambodia, which are part of Trường Hải Agricultural Joint Stock Company (THACO AGRI). They tour these zones, including cattle farms, fish farms, banana plantations, mango orchards, lychee farms, and the Daunpenh Industrial Cluster, to gain insights into the working environment. They also meet with students and alumni from Tra Vinh University currently interning or working in these zones, and discuss the implementation of the Co.op program.

Thach Tao, a fourth-year student majoring in Khmer Language, interning at Koun Mom Integrated Zone, mentions that they have received excellent guidance and adapted well to the job requirements with the enthusiastic support of their colleagues. THACO AGRI provides a comfortable living environment and a great working atmosphere at the Koun Mom Integrated Zone. If given the opportunity, they would like to become official employees of THACO AGRI.

In the future, Tra Vinh University and THACO AGRI will further enhance their efforts in career counseling, training, internships under the Co.op program, and recruitment. Specifically, THACO AGRI will carry out career counseling and admissions activities in nearby regions of the integrated zones. Sponsored candidates will receive financial support for training at Tra Vinh University under the Co.op program, participate in paid internships at THACO AGRI, and receive commitments for suitable job positions within THACO AGRI’s integrated zones in Cambodia.
