Prime Minister welcomes Thailand’s top legislator

Prime Minister Nguyen Xuan Phuc hosted a reception for President of the National Legislative Assembly of Thailand Pornpetch Wichitcholchai in Hanoi yesterday.

The PM said he will lead a high-level Government delegation to visit Thailand from Thursday to Saturday to exchange measures to promote bilateral friendship and cooperation, and increase the two countries' strategic partnership.

He said Vietnam and Thailand have enhanced coordination in various fields from politics, security, and defense to economics, trade, tourism, culture and society in recent times. Phuc hoped the two countries will seek measures to balance trade and increase the bilateral trade to 20 billion USD by 2020. He proposed Thailand open its market for Vietnamese goods and create more favourable conditions for Vietnamese workers to work in the country as well as encourage Thai businesses to boost investment in Vietnam. Vietnam will address difficulties and create conditions for Thai investors to do business. Thailand's top legislator said the connection of roads and railways between Thailand and Vietnam via third countries in the future will be an important factor to promote bilateral wide-ranging cooperation, including tourism, he said, hoping that the two sides will strengthen measures to draw more Thai tourists to Vietnam.
