Witdamrong, for his part, affirmed that the provincial authorities will always create favourable conditions for Vietnamese-Thai people residing and doing business in Nakhon Pathom.

The host said Nakhon Pathom is working closely with Vietnam’s central localities, including forming twinning relations with Ha Tinh province.

He pledged to preserve and promote tourism at common heritages of the Thai and Vietnamese people such as the Friendship Village, the Nakhon Pathom – Hanoi Vietnamese language teaching centre and Clock Tower.-VNA
