HAVANA (VNS)— Nicaragua wants more co-operation in economics, trade and investment, according to its President, Daniel Ortega.
He made the statement on Monday at a reception for Communist Party of Viet Nam Politburo member Le Hong Anh who has been on a visit to the Latin American country.
President Ortega said he considered Anh's visit an important milestone in relations between the Party and the Sandinista National Liberation Front (FSLN) as well as between the two States.
He urged Vietnamese enterprises to visit Nicaragua to seek investment and trade opportunities, adding that Nicaraguan businesses would also study Viet Nam's know-how in agriculture, the development of small and medium-sized enterprise, as well as co-operation possibilities with Vietnamese companies.
The two sides exchanged views on numerous regional and international issues, and agreed on measures to further bilateral ties.
Accordingly, the two sides will foster exchanges of people and information and support each other at international forums that the two countries are members.
The same day, Anh met the President of the Nicaraguan National Assembly, Rene Nunez, who wants to enhance the relationship between the two parliaments, as well as step up delegation exchanges.
Before Anh left on an official visit to Cuba, an agreement was signed by the CPV and the FSLN to strengthen friendship, solidarity and comprehensive cooperation between the two Parties and States. — VNS
