Vietnamese Party official visits Qatar to boost bilateral ties

Politburo member of the Communist Party of Vietnam (CPV), Truong Thi Mai, has been on a visit to Qatar from last Saturday to Wednesday at the invitation of the Qatar government.

Mai, who is also head of the CPV Central Committee's Commission for Mass Mobilizations, met with Qataris officials to discuss measures in order to boost bilateral relations.

At these meetings, the Qataris leaders highly valued the role and position of Vietnam in the region and the world and expected the two sides will further bolster cooperation and friendship between the two nations and parliaments. The two sides agreed to increase the exchange of delegations at all levels and facilitate the Qatari Emir's visit to Vietnam. They pledged to enhance political consultations in order to exchange views on issues of mutual concern, closely and effectively coordinate at regional and international forums, step up partnership in the trade and the investment of oil and gas, consider establishing friendship within parliamentarians groups, and promote a number of projects that support education for Vietnamese children.

The Party official also asked Qatari leaders to support Vietnam to become a dialogue partner of the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC), create favourable conditions for Vietnamese people living in Qatar, and share with Vietnam the experience in mass mobilisation, citizen protection and management of social organisations.
