HA NOI (VNS) — Vice President Nguyen Thi Doan hosted a reception in Ha Noi on November 13 for former Canadian Governor General Michalle Jean, who is on a working visit to Viet Nam.
Michalle Jean said Viet Nam is an important partner of Canada in Asia-Pacific, and there is still much room for bilateral cooperation.
Viet Nam has actively contributed to the Francophone community, whose internal partnership can be even further expanded thanks to Viet Nam's cooperation and investment activities in Africa, she added.
The Vice President expressed her delight at flourishing relations between Viet Nam and Canada.
She agreed with Michalle Jean's proposal on linking the University of Ottawa and a Vietnamese university and giving priorities to joint scientific studies and expressed wishes to step up education links with Canada.
She also suggested the Francophone community foster the teaching and learning of the French language, thus expanding member countries' cooperation to other spheres.
Viet Nam will fulfill its missions as a member of the Francophone community so as to consolidate the solidarity and economic cooperation within the grouping, she said.— VNA/VNS
