HÀ NỘI – Prime Minister Nguyễn Xuân Phúc yesterday received the Chairman and CEO of Aéroports de Paris (ADP), Augustin de Romanet, saying that the French airport group’s investment and business cooperation in Việt Nam will substantially contribute to the two countries’ strategic partnership.
He valued the ADP’s investment in Việt Nam, particularly in transport, and its agreement with the Airports Corporation of Việt Nam (ACV) to become a strategic shareholder.
On the basis of the Việt Nam-France strategic partnership, cooperation between the ADP and the ACV would help enhance bilateral ties in a more substantive manner, he said, speaking highly of the group’s experience in airport operation.
Phúc noted the fact that Việt Nam is one of few Asian countries that have provided e-visas, describing this as a favourable condition for tourists and investors to come to Việt Nan, which in turn will stimulate the growth of the aviation industry and the demand for upgrading airports.
He said the ADP’s partnership with the ACV would help promote the latter’s airport operation capacity, thereby increasing the quality of services at local airports to the world level.
For his part, Augustin de Romanet said his group wanted to make long-term investment in Việt Nam and help to modernise local airports – an important momentum for socio-economic development.
He informed his host about the development of airports in France and considered this a useful experience for the Southeast Asian nation in airport upgrade and expansion.
He also hoped for continued support from the Vietnamese Government and relevant agencies for the ADP’s activities in the country.—VNS
