HÀ NỘI — Prime Minister Nguyễn Xuân Phúc and his entourage arrived in Myanmar's capital city of Nay Pyi Taw late on Monday, starting his official visit to the country from December 16-18 at the invitation of President U Win Myint.
PM Phúc was greeted at the Nay Pyi Taw international airport by Myo Thein Gyi, Myanmar's Minister for Education, and U Myo Aung, head of the Nay Pyi Taw Council, and the degelation of the Vietnamese embassy in the country.
The Vietnamese Government leader is accompanied by Minister and Chairman of the Government Office Mai Tiến Dũng, Minister of Agriculture and Rural Development Nguyễn Xuân Cường, Governor of the State Bank of Việt Nam Lê Minh Hưng, and Deputy Minister of National Defence Bế Xuân Trường, among others.
The visit aims to show Việt Nam’s appreciation for and commitment to its partnership with Myanmar, and its readiness to co-operate with Myanmar in diverse areas.
Since Việt Nam and Myanmar upgraded bilateral ties to a comprehensive co-operative partnership level in 2017, they have seen strong development of their relationship in various areas, bringing benefits to their peoples.
Along with stronger political ties, trust between the two governments and peoples has been strengthened. The number of Vietnamese enterprises in Myanmar has doubled to more than 200 from the figure in 2016. — VNS
