HÀ NỘI — Việt Nam hopes to push its comprehensive partnership with the US for the long-term benefits of the two nations, National Assembly Vice Chairman Phùng Quốc Hiển said on Tuesday.
Meeting with Alexander Feldman, President and CEO of the US-ASEAN Business Council, in Hà Nội, Hiển also said the two sides should further accelerate the implementation of measures aimed at intensifying the bilateral relations, especially in economy – trade, defence – security, science and technology, education and training, health care, environment, and humanitarian activities.
Hiển expressed his hope the council would continue close cooperation with and serve as an important bridge in bringing US businesses to Việt Nam, helping strengthen bilateral relations.
