Deputy PM: Vietnam wants expand cooperative ties with Tanzania

Deputy Prime Minister Trinh Dinh Dung says Vietnam treasures and wants to expand mutually-beneficial cooperation with African countries like Tanzania.

Mr. Dung, who just concluded a working trip to Tanzania, praised the host's contributions to peace, stability, and cooperation in the Southern African Development Community and East African Community.

Tanzania's leaders expressed admiration for Vietnam's struggle for national independence and reunification in the past and called Vietnam's current national development, a source of inspiration for the Tanzanian people.

Addressing the Vietnam-Tanzania Business Forum, Mr. Dung urged expanded cooperation in apparel, agricultural machinery, and electronic spare parts in addition to cashew nuts and rice.

Vietnam is ready to serve as a bridge for Tanzanian goods to enter the ASEAN market and wants Tanzania to make it easier for Vietnamese products to penetrate Tanzania and Eastern African nations, Deputy PM Dung said.
