|Boeing 787 from Vietnam Airlines
WASHINGTON (VNS) — Boeing and Microsoft expressed plans to boost co-operation with Viet Nam at meetings with Vietnamese Ambassador to the US Nguyen Quoc Cuong in Washington last week.
During the visit, representatives of Boeing said the company would transfer its first Boeing 787 to Vietnam Airlines in 2015 to mark 20 years of normalisation of Viet Nam – US relations. The company also hoped the transfer would accelerate the target of establishing a direct flight to the US on Vietnam Airlines.
In another visit of the Ambassador to Microsoft, the company said it highly appreciated the commitment of the Vietnamese Government in the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) negotiations, adding the corporation considered Viet Nam a key area for business development. . — vns
