The ongoing working visit of a delegation of Canadian parliamentarians and businesspersons aims to learn about Vietnam’s situation as well as seek economic and investment cooperation opportunities in the country.

The remark was made by Vice Speaker of the Parliament of Canada Barry John Devolin, who is leading the delegation, during his meeting with President of the Vietnam Union of Friendship Organisations (VUFO) Vu Xuan Hong in Hanoi on September 9.

In recent years, the Canada-Vietnam Friendship Association has regularly sent such delegations to Vietnam to seek local partners, added the Canadian guest.

VUFO Hong said that the September 7-14 visit offers the two countries’ parliamentarians and businessmen a chance to further cooperation in fields of mutual interest, contributing to the friendship and cooperation between both sides.

On this occasion, Barry John Devolin presented a friendship insignia of the Canada–Vietnam Friendship Association to Vu Xuan Hong for his contributions to the two peoples’ cooperation.-VNA
