HA NOI (VNS)— Prime Minister Nguyen Tan Dung said he hopes Viet Nam and the Republic of Korea (RoK) will further their economic, trade and investment ties in an effort to raise two-way trade to a more impressive figure.
Meeting with the outgoing RoK Ambassador, Ha Chan Ho, in Ha Noi yesterday, Dung said relations had been upgraded to a strategic partnership, adding that cultural similarities and abundant co-operation potential made the task easier.
The Vietnamese Government had always created favourable conditions for RoK investors to do long-term business in Viet Nam, he said.
The Vietnamese leader suggested the RoK continue granting a high amount of Official Development Assistance (ODA) to Viet Nam, focusing on transport infrastructure, climate change adaptation and environmental protection, while assisting the South-east Asian nation in building high-tech centres.
He also proposed that the two sides work closely to tackle all problems that arise in their labour co-operation. — VNS
