PM Phuc talks with Danish PM, receives UK ambassador

Prime Minister Nguyen Xuan Phuc and Danish Prime Minister Lars Lokke Rasmussen have discussed measures to strengthen Vietnam-Denmark comprehensive partnership, including strategic partnership in climate change, energy, environment, and green growth.

During their telephone talk on Wednesday, the leaders agreed to work closely together to celebrate the 47th anniversary of bilateral diplomatic ties. As Denmark will host the first high-level Global Green Growth Forum in October, Rasmussen invited PM Phuc to attend the event.

On the same day, PM Phuc lauded contributions of outgoing UK Ambassador to Vietnam Giles Lever in specifying and implementing measures to boost the strategic partnership between Vietnam and the UK.

At a reception in Hanoi, the PM said that the two sides should coordinate closely in organizing the upcoming meeting of the Vietnam-UK Joint Economic-Trade Committee. He said Vietnam hopes to continue receiving assistance from the UK through the Prosperity Fund, especially in the areas of climate change adaptation, environment, green energy, and scientific research.
