Hanoi (VNA) - Hanoi will create favourable conditions for businesses from the United Arab Emirates (UAE) to invest in the Vietnamese capital, said Chairman of the municipal People’s Committee Nguyen Duc Chung.

At a reception for UAE Ambassador to Vietnam Obaid Saeed Bintaresh Aldhaheri on July 17, Chung said both sides have great potential for cooperation, adding that Hanoi has many products that can meet demands of the UAE market, such as garments, leather shoes, agricultural products and food.

The official affirmed the city always encourages cultural exchange activities with the Middle East country.

Chung also expressed his hope that the UAE diplomat will do his best to elevate relations between the UAE and Vietnam to a new height.

For his part, Aldaheri stressed that the UAE government sees Vietnam as an important partner.

As the two countries will ink agreements in cultural and sport cooperation, he wished that Hanoi will back UAE in promoting tourism, and help UAE firms to invest in the city.

He hoped that both parties will enjoy further cooperation, as well as sound growth in two-way trade.-VNA
