BUCHAREST (VNS)— A leading Romanian lawmaker has urged his country and Viet Nam to deepen their partnership in politics and economics.
The Speaker of the Chamber of Deputies, Valeriu Stefan Zgonea, made the proposal while receiving the visiting Vietnamese National Assembly Vice Chairwoman, Nguyen Thi Kim Ngan, on Friday in Bucharest.
Praising Viet Nam's development as remarkable, the host pledged to do his utmost to promote co-operation with Viet Nam and work as a facilitator linking the Southeast Asian country with its EU partners.
He also expressed his hope that Viet Nam, in return, will become an attractive destination for Romanian businesses, helping them to access the ASEAN market, as well as the Asian-Pacific region.
Sharing her host's views, Vice Chairwoman Ngan suggested the two sides do more to step up their work together in politics, economics, education, training and culture.
She expressed her regard for Romania's support for Viet Nam by training over 3,000 high-quality officials.
Ngan conveyed NA Chairman Nguyen Sinh Hung's invitation to Zgonea and a delegation of Romanian businesses to visit Viet Nam, an offer which was gladly accepted. — VNS
