Chairman of the Ho Chi Minh City People’s Committee Le Hoang Quan received Thai Ambassador to Vietnam Panyarak Poolhup on September 10, on the occasion of his working visit to the city.

Quan expressed his pleasure with the fine development of the bilateral ties, especially after Party General Secretary Nguyen Phu Trong’s visit to Thailand last year during which a strategic partnership between the two nations was set up.

Ho Chi Minh City is now home to 127 Thai-invested projects worth nearly 200 million USD in total and two-way trade between the two sides hit 2 billion USD, he said, pledging all possible conditions for businesses from Thailand to operate in the city.

For his part, the Thai ambassador thanked the local authorities for their support for Thai enterprises over the past time.-VNA
