HÀ NỘI — Speaker of the National Assembly of the Republic of Korea Park Byeong-seug and his spouse will pay an official visit to Việt Nam from October 31 to November 4.

The visit will be made at the invitation of Chairwoman of the National Assembly Nguyễn Thị Kim Ngân, according to a statement by the NA’s Committee for External Relations.

Việt Nam-RoK relations have developed comprehensively and pragmatically on the basis of political trust between the two countries’ high-ranking leaders, similarities in history and culture, mutual economic assistance, and people-to-people exchange.

After their relationship was upgraded to a strategic cooperative partnership in 2009, the two countries have become each other’s important partner, with strongly developing cooperation in economy-trade-investment and labour, and development cooperation.

Collaboration in culture and education, and people-to-people exchange have expanded in both quantity and quality, serving as an important foundation for the two countries’ people to enhance their mutual understanding.

Particularly, the Việt Nam-RoK and RoK-Việt Nam friendship parliamentarians’ groups have served as a bridge to connect the legislatures and peoples of the two nations. — VNS
