HÀ NỘI — National Assembly Vice Chairman Uông Chu Lưu hosted a reception in Hà Nội yesterday for Chairperson of the All-Party Parliamentary Group for Việt Nam of the UK Wayne David, assuring him that Việt Nam highly values its friendship and co-operation with the UK.
Lưu said the visit would strengthen ties between the two parliaments’ agencies and legislators, thereby promoting the bilateral strategic partnership between Việt Nam and the UK.
He suggested reinforcing collaboration in culture, education, and workforce training – especially in the fields of law, finance-banking, insurance, high technology and teaching English in Việt Nam.
Hailing the outcomes of talks between the UK delegation and the Vietnamese NA Committee on External Relations, several other NA committees and the Việt Nam-UK Friendship Parliamentarians’ Group, Lưu expressed support for the strengthening of comprehensive co-operation between the two law-making bodies; the facilitation of visits by parliamentarians to raise mutual understanding, share information and experience in parliamentary activities; and maintaining consultation and mutual support at multilateral parliamentary forums.
Wayne David expressed his profound condolences over the passing of President Trần Đại Quang, and most recently, former Party General Secretary Đỗ Mười.
Briefing the host about the outcomes of meetings with the Vietnamese NA committees and agencies, he said that Việt Nam-UK ties were growing in all areas.
He asked the two countries to further boost all-round ties to bring practical benefits to their people, especially in training and other fields of their respective strength to match the bilateral strategic partnership. — VNS
