SEOUL — President of the Việt Nam Fatherland Front (VFF) Central Committee Nguyễn Thiện Nhân has suggested the Republic of Korea (RoK) support Việt Nam in infrastructure development and cyber security training.

The VFF leader made the proposal while visiting the Speaker of the National Assembly of the RoK Chung Sye-kyun on Thursday.

Noting with pleasure the fruitful partnership between Việt Nam and the RoK, Nhân thanked the RoK for considering Viet Nam a leading partner.

The VFF President briefed his host on the achievements Việt Nam had recorded over the last 30 years, with growth averaging 6.6 percent and a poverty rate below 5 percent.

Việt Nam had become attractive to foreign investors, especially investors from the RoK, he noted.

Chung thanked the Vietnamese Party and State for their support to RoK businesses in the country.

The RoK’s position as Việt Nam’s top investor in 2015 demonstrated that the Southeast Asian nation satisfied the requirements of RoK investors, he said.

The Speaker expressed his belief that the partnership would thrive in the time ahead.

He suggested Việt Nam invest more in tourism as many RoK tourists want to visit the country.

He also pledged to create the best possible conditions to protect the legitimate rights and interests of Vietnamese labourers in the host country.

During the visit Nhan also met with Prime Minister Hwang Kyo-ahn. — VNS
