New Delhi (VNA) – Deputy Prime Minister Le Minh Khai, on December 17, visited and met with leaders of the National Institution for Transforming India (NITI Aayog), within the framework of National Assembly Chairman Vuong Dinh Hue’s official visit to India.

Hosting the Vietnamese Deputy PM, NITI Aayog Vice Chairman Rajiv Kumar lauded Vietnam’s flexible policy regarding pandemic control and socio-economic development.  

The institute is a national development policy-making body headed by Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Kumar informed.

Highlighting its cooperation activities and experience exchange, he hoped to soon establish a collaboration relationship between the institute and an equivalent agency in Vietnam.

He suggested a series of fields for joint engagements with Vietnam, including green industry, renewable energy, digital transformation, high-tech agriculture, health, pharmaceuticals, water source protection, culture, and small and medium enterprises’ cooperation, among others.

Agreeing with these proposals, Khai suggested that the institute set up a collaboration mechanism with the Ministry of Planning and Investment of Vietnam to share experience in the field in areas of India’s strength, such as renewable energy, high-tech agriculture, innovation, and to soon reach an agreement on a specific cooperation framework in the near future./.
