The trip is part of a programme themed “Vietnam-US comprehensive partnership for peace and prosperity” and aims at boosting ties between the two nations and their parliaments in various areas, including trade collaboration, alleviation of war consequences, the East Sea issue, response to climate change and cybersecurity.

At the meeting, VUFO President Nguyen Phuong Nga said the visit will help delegates obtain knowledge on Vietnam’s socio-economic and political affairs.
