At a reception for New Zealand's visiting Deputy Prime Minister cum Minister of Finance, Bill English, in Ha Noi yesterday, Dung proposed that more scholarships awarded to Vietnamese students would help increase cultural exchange between Vietnamese and New Zealanders.
PM Dung also suggested that New Zealand continue supporting the Vietnamese community in the country.
