HA NOI (VNS) — The National Assembly of Viet Nam values its traditional relationship and co-operation with Poland, and sees Poland as a priority partner in Central Eastern Europe.
National Assembly Chairman Nguyen Sinh Hung made these comments when receiving visiting Polish Parliament Deputy Speaker Jerzy Wenderlich in Ha Noi yesterday.
While praising the political and diplomatic relations between the two countries and their two assemblies, Hung urged more delegation exchanges be conducted at all levels in the near future.
The two assemblies should also share experiences in law making in the context of international integration, and coordinate in supervising the implementation of agreements signed between the two Governments so that these agreements could see actual results.
In response, Jerzy Wenderlich said he highly valued the reforms put in place by the Vietnamese National Assembly, especially last month's approval of the amended 1992 Constitution.
He also confirmed that Poland was ready to support the Vietnamese National Assembly in human resource training, in law making and in administration reforms.
Also yesterday, the visiting Polish leader met with Vice President Nguyen Thi Doan, during which they noted that both countries' businesses should be assisted to explore business opportunities to increase bilateral trade, which has seen a gradual rise in past years.
On the same day, during a meeting with Wenderlich in HCM City, Chairwoman of the city People's Council Nguyen Thi Quyet Tam said she hoped to learn from Poland 's experiences in urban management as the city was facing many challenges, especially in traffic.
Wenderlich said he was impressed by the development of the city and pledged to create favourable conditions for Polish businesses to explore investment opportunities here. — VNS
