HA NOI (VNS) — Prime Minister Nguyen Tan Dung asked the Honorary General Consul of Viet Nam in the Republic of Korea's Busan-Gyeongnam region to continue efforts to boost all-round co-operation between Busan and Vietnamese localities during a reception in Ha Noi yesterday.
The PM also asked Honorary General Consul Park Soo-kwan to keep up his good work protecting and supporting Vietnamese nationals living in the Busan-Gyeongnam region.
He said the State Bank of Viet Nam would license the opening of the Busan Bank branch in Viet Nam soon, and he always backed bilateral trade and investment activities between the two countries.
Park said Busan was working with several Vietnamese localities in health care and fisheries with positive outcomes. The Busan Hospital and Ha Noi-based Viet Duc Hospital were stepping up co-ordination on internal organ transplants. Meanwhile, representatives from the central province of Khanh Hoa travelled to Busan recently to learn more about building a large-scale fishing centre. — VNS
