Viet Nam, China discuss trade and tourism potential

Delegations from Viet Nam and China discussed the potential for trade and tourism co-operation between the two countries in a meeting held on Wednesday morning in Ha Noi.

The meeting, aimed at boosting the friendship relation and exploring more opportunities for cooperation, was organised by the Vi?t Nam Union of Friendship Organisations in collaboration with the Chinese People’s External Friendship Association.

It was held as a Chinese delegation, led by Zhang Dejiang, chairman of Chinese Standing Committee of the National People’s Congress (NPC), is visiting Viet Nam from November 8 to 11.

The meeting included representatives from six Chinese regions of Guangxi, Yunnan, Guangdong, Hainan, Sichuan and Shandong, delegates from Cao Bang, Lang Son, Lao Cai, Quang Ninh, Nghe An and Khanh Hoa provinces in Viet Nam and from the three cities of Ha Noi, Hai Phong and HCM City.

Speaking at the meeting, Nguyen Thien Nhan, President of Viet Nam Fatherland Front, said Viet Nam attached special importance to its friendship with China and gave it a top priority in its foreign policy.

Nh?n said Viet Nam as well as China were embarking on an important phase of the renewal and open-door process thus ensuring a peaceful, stable and cooperative environment for national construction and development were the common interests.

Fostering friendship and developing relations in a healthy and sustainable manner are crucial for both countries’ development and would also contribute to peace, stability and development in the region and the world, Nhan said.

He said, bilateral trade between Viet Nam and China touched over US$51 billion in the first nine months of this year, adding that Viet Nam is China’s biggest partner in the ASEAN region.

It is estimated that nearly 2 million Chinese visited Viet Nam between January and September 2016, ranking first among the number of foreign visitors to Viet Nam, Nhan said.

Zhang Dejiang said the meeting would help in raising mutual understanding and trust between the two sides.

The two countries need to continue strengthening strategic co-operations, boosting co-operations at local level, and organising more Viet Nam – China People’s Forum in order to consolidate the relationship between Viet Nam and China, he said. — VNS
