HCM CITY (VNS) — HCM City had great potential for fostering co-operation with the Czech Republic in education and health, particularly in cancer treatment, orthopaedics and obstetrics.
Chairman of the municipal People's Committee Le Hoang Quan made the statement at a reception yesterday for visiting Vice President of the Czech Senate Miluse Horska, adding that the city was Viet Nam's centre for education and health with more than 110 universities and colleges and many major hospitals.
He said that HCM City wanted to intensify co-operation with Czech localities, especially in the fields that the country had expertise in.
Quan expressed his hope that HCM City would be twinned with Prague in the future for the benefits of both cities.
Horska said that the two countries now have not only focused on economics, but had also expanded ties in cultural fields to further their traditional friendship.
Following the progress made in healthcare and education, the Czech Republic was willing to enhance ties with the city in those fields, she added. — VNS
