During the visit, Deputy PM Hue held talks with Cameroon Prime Minister Joseph Dion Ngute, and visited the Senate and the National Assembly of the Parliament of Cameroon. During talks, PM Joseph Dion Ngute said Cameroon wants to learn from Vietnam’s development model. He said Cameroon hopes to set up cooperative ties with Vietnam across the fields, with a focus on sectors where Cameroon has great potential and Vietnam is strong at, such as agriculture and processing of cashew nut, wood and coffee. He added that his country also wishes to boost the bilateral partnership in telecommunications, which has already started with the operation of Nextel, a joint venture between Vietnam’s Viettel group and Cameroon partner.

Deputy PM Hue said to facilitate stronger bilateral collaboration, the two countries should intensify negotiation for the early signing of bilateral agreements, creating the legal framework for trade as well as cooperation in other fields. On this occasion, Mr. Hue had working sessions with Vice President of the Senate Lamido Abubakary Abdulaye and Vice President of the National Assembly Etong Nzok Hilarion.
