HA NOI (VNS) — Deputy Prime Minister Hoang Trung Hai sought partnership in economic restructuring, including public investment, finance-banking and human resources, as he greeted Vice President of the Italian Chamber of Deputies Marina Sereni in Ha Noi yesterday.
Deputy PM Hai thanked the Italian government and people for their continued support to Viet Nam, particularly the provision of official development assistance.
The Government of Viet Nam wanted more Italian investment in oil and gas, manufacturing, small and medium-scale business, scientific and technological transfer, tourism and cultural exchange, he noted.
Sereni said the joint declaration on the establishment of a strategic partnership and an action plan signed by both countries' leaders in 2013 would lay the groundwork for concrete actions.
She agreed with her host that Viet Nam and Italy needed to expand partnerships, especially in business and investment, adding that Italy was encouraging more investment in technology and an extension of commercial reach at home, in EU markets and beyond. — VNS
