HCM City (VNA) – Chairman of the Ho Chi Minh City People’s Committee Nguyen Thanh Phong said the southern economic hub supports the opening of a direct air route to Prague, the capital city of the Czech Republic. 

Phong and visiting Czech Minister of Justice Robert Pelikan shared the views on June 8 that the air route would contribute to boosting tourism ties as well as people-to-people diplomacy between the two countries. 

HCM City hopes to enhance cooperation with the Czech Republic as the bilateral economic and trade links still remain modest, the host said. 

He called on Czech businesses to invest in the city in such areas as infrastructure, vehicles, energy, the manufacturing of farming machines and electric equipment, and food processing industry. 

Phong expressed his belief that the Czech Republic, with its role in the EU, will help connect and promote relations between Vietnam and the EU, particularly in trade and investment. 

For his part, Robert Pelikan affirmed that Czech firms stand ready to invest in Vietnam. 

Vietnam holds a lot of potential and opportunities to step up trade ties with the Czech Republic, he said, suggesting the two sides intensify the exchange of information to enable their businesses to go into partnership.-VNA
