Vietnam and Switzerland cooperate to improve capacity and share experience in legislation.

National Assembly Chairwoman Nguyen Thi Kim Ngan has proposed Switzerland continue encouraging its businesses to invest in Vietnam, especially in finance, high technology, manufacturing, pharmaceuticals, farm produce processing, tourism, and hotel services.

Chairwoman Ngan made the proposal during her talks with President of the Council of States of Switzerland Ivo Bischofberger in Hanoi on Wednesday after hosting an official welcome ceremony for the Swiss leader. During the talks, the two sides shared experience in environmental protection. Vietnam proposed Switzerland provide technical support in building laws in the field.

They agreed to strengthen cooperation in education and training. Vietnam called Switzerland to increase the number of scholarships for Vietnamese students to pursue study in major fields such as law, banking, high technology and tourism, while Switzerland affirmed to open vocational training courses for Vietnam.

The two sides consented to increase the exchange of visits by high-ranking delegations, committees and friendship parliamentarian groups to share experience in parliamentary operations, laying a foundation for the development of practical and effective cooperation in all fields. Earlier on the same day, the Swiss delegation laid a wreath and paid tribute to President Ho Chi Minh at his mausoleum, and visited Uncle Ho's Stilt House.
