MOSCOW — National Assembly (NA) Chairwoman Nguyễn Thị Kim Ngân visited the Vietnamese Embassy in Russia on Tuesday as part of her official trip to the country.
Speaking to embassy staff, the top legislator said Russia is a focus in the Party and State’s foreign policy.
She stressed that amid complicated international and regional developments and an increase in cases requiring citizen protection, the embassy should be more active and step up measures to support Vietnamese expatriates.
Ngân also visited the hi-tech dairy farm of TH Group in Volokolamsk District of Moscow Oblast yesterday.
Speaking to the Vietnamese parliamentary delegation in Volokolamsk, Deputy Chairman of the Moscow Region Government Khromov Vadim Valerianovich said Việt Nam and Russia boasted a traditional friendship and they should keep strengthening this relationship.
He said TH Group’s project had received support from the two countries’ top leaders, voicing his delight that the project would have put into use about 70ha of land in Moscow Oblast by April 2020 and 6,000 cows by August the same year.
He said local authorities would do everything they can to join the Vietnamese partner in implementing the project on schedule, expressing his belief it would help bolster the two countries’ co-operation.
A TH Group representative said the business was carrying out a dairy farming and processing complex and some food projects with total capital of US$2.7 billion in Moscow Oblast, Kaluga Oblast, the Republic of Bashkortostan and the Primorye region.
In Moscow Oblast, the group plans to build three clusters of farms with a material area covering more than 30,000ha of land. The first cluster in Volokolamsk District became operational in January 2018. Work on the second cluster in Shatursky District is scheduled to begin next year.
Chairwoman Ngân highly valued TH Group’s efforts to develop its dairy farming and processing project in Russia, congratulating the firm on its initial achievements.
She said the NA and the Government would direct agencies to deal with difficulties facing the group during project implementation, adding that she hopes this project would be successful and become a highlight of Việt Nam-Russia ties. VNS
