The “Hanoi Days in Moscow” programme is underway in Russia, bringing authorities and organisations from the two capital cities closer through a broad range of activities.

Speaking at the opening ceremony on September 21, Minister of the Moscow Government and Head of the Department for External Economic and International Relations Sergey Cheremin and Vice Chairman of the Hanoi People’s Committee Vu Hong Khanh hailed the “Hanoi Days in Moscow” and “Moscow Days in Hanoi” programmes, which have been held annually over the past 15 years.

An art performance staged by artists from Hanoi received enthusiastic responses from audience members in Moscow, who expressed their wish to visit Vietnam and explore the land and people after the event.

Earlier the same day, Khanh paid a courtesy visit to Chairman of the Moscow city Duma Shaposhnikov Aleksey Valerievich, during which they informed each other on their respective city’s socio-economic situations as well as a number of development policies and guidelines.

At a working session with Moscow authorities, the two sides reviewed the implementation of cooperation documents and rolled out orientations for their comprehensive collaboration.

They agreed to prioritise cooperation in economics and trade as well as experience sharing in city construction and management, environmental protection and cultural exchange, among others.-VNA
