During his reception for a visiting delegation of the Canadian House of Commons in Hanoi on December 1, the NA Vice Chairman spoke highly of the friendship and cooperation between Vietnam and Canada over the past years, in bilateral, regional and international aspects.
Hien said the Joint Statement of the Prime Ministers of Vietnam and Canada on the comprehensive partnership marks an important step forward to promote the relations between the two nations in a practical, effective, and long-term manner.
Vietnam is consistent in boosting its comprehensive renewal, completing the socialism-oriented market economy, restructuring the economy, developing the private sector, and improving investment climate, Hien affirmed.
Chairman of the Canadian House of Commons’ Standing Committee on Foreign Affairs and International Development Robert Daniel Nault, who led the Canadian delegation, said Canada wants to cooperate with Vietnam in preventing and adapting to climate change.
He also extended his welcome to Vietnamese NA delegations to his country to discuss measures to boost cooperation between the two legislative bodies, thus consolidating the Vietnam – Canada relationship.
