HA NOI (VNS) — Viet Nam hoped to tap co-operative prospects with the Republic of Korea (RoK) towards achieving US$70 billion in trade before 2020, Prime Minister Nguyen Tan Dung told RoK National Assembly Member Ahn Sang-soo at a meeting in Ha Noi yesterday.
With the recently-signed bilateral free trade agreement, Dung said Viet Nam looked forward to strengthening bilateral co-operation across all fields on par with their strategic partnership.
He pledged all possible support to Korean investors in Viet Nam and asked the RoK to resume receiving Vietnamese workers and provide assistance to Vietnamese nationals in the country.
Ahn, who is also member of the RoK – Vietnam Friendship Association, promised to encourage Korean investors to conduct business in Viet Nam and welcome Vietnamese labourers as well as the Vietnamese community in the RoK.
He also assured Dung that he would convey his suggestions to President Park Geun-hye upon his return to the RoK.— VNS
