Ms. Ngan said she believed that agreements reached by leaders of the two countries will create new momentum for their bilateral ties. She suggested that New Zealand share its experiences in the Trans-Pacific Partnership agreement, and open its market to Vietnamese agricultural produce. The Chairwoman added that Vietnamese encourages New Zealand businesses to invest here, particularly in processing agricultural-fisheries products.  She also called on New Zealand to help Vietnam’s human resources development through scholarship programs.

Ms. Ngan also expressed her hope that New Zealand will help Vietnam host the APEC meetings in 2017 and share its experiences in dealing with climate change.

Also on Tuesday, National Assembly Chairwoman Ngan received Philippine Ambassador Noel Servigon. She praised the relationship between two countries, pledging to work closely with the Philippine parliament and to strengthen their strategic partnership. Ms. Ngan suggests both sides continue coordinate with each other more effectively to deepen bilateral ties.
