NA Chairman meets UK, New Zealand ambassadors

(VOVWORLD) -National Assembly Chairman Vuong Dinh Hue hosted separate receptions in Hanoi on Wednesday for British Ambassador to Vietnam Ian Frew and New Zealand Ambassador to Vietnam Tredene Dobson.

Receiving the British diplomat, the top Vietnamese legislator called for efforts to strengthen their cooperation in trade and economy, and help their businesses diversify the markets and participate in the global supply chain more deeply.
Mr. Hue called on British firms to increase investment in Vietnam, affirming that the NA and the government of Vietnam always step up efforts to improve the business environment for foreign investors, including those from the UK.

Greatly valuing the UK’s potential and capacity in the financial and monetary markets, the NA leader expressed his hope for stronger cooperation in this field, including the building of an international financial center in Ho Chi Minh City. Vietnam aspires to work with the UK to deal with global issues, including digital transformation and just energy transition, he said.

At the reception for outgoing New Zealand Ambassador to Vietnam Tredene Dobson the same day, Mr. Hue said he and the Vietnamese NA will continue to offer favorable conditions for the New Zealand Embassy and Ambassador Dobson's successor to work in Vietnam as a contribution to bolstering cooperation between the two countries as well as between the legislative bodies.

The ambassador affirmed the importance of tightening parliamentary cooperation between New Zealand and Vietnam, pledging to ramp up bilateral cooperation in any capacity.
