HÀ NỘI – Prime Minister Nguyễn Xuân Phúc received newly-accredited Myanmar Ambassador to Việt Nam Kyaw Soe Win yesterday, voicing hope that the diplomat would contribute to ties between the countries.
Việt Nam and Myanmar boast long-standing relations which have been growing in multiple aspects, he said, noting that their co-operation potential is enormous.
Việt Nam is a big investor in Myanmar, particularly in real estate, banking and telecommunications, the PM said, asking Myanmar to facilitate Vietnamese bank branch there, as well as telecommunications companies.
He also called on the countries to expand co-operation to the petroleum and aviation industries.
PM Phúc said his country has strength in agricultural production and wants to share experience with Myanmar in this sphere, especially coffee and pepper cultivation and processing. The two sides can also partner in producing rice seeds, sugar, ethanol and electricity, planting and processing cotton, and developing rubber trees.
Win pledged to contribute to the countries’ sound connections, especially in economy, investment and trade.
As his country is developing its economy, it wants to attract foreign investors, including those from Việt Nam, he said, assuring that the Myanmar Government creates the best possible conditions for Vietnamese businesses.
The country hopes to learn from Việt Nam’s agricultural development experience.
The two countries should increase the exchange of high-ranking delegations to promote ties, the diplomat said. — VNS
