Hanoi (VNA) – Vice Chairman of the Hanoi People’s Committee Ngo Van Quy received a visiting Swedish business delegation on April 23 to discuss cooperation potential across fields.

Stressing the long-time relations between Vietnam and Sweden, Swedish Ambassador to Vietnam Pereric Hogberg said the visit of Swedish firms is among activities in celebration of 50 years since Vietnam and Sweden established diplomatic relations.

Encouraging trade-investment figures recorded between the two countries recently have laid a basis for future cooperation between Sweden and a potential market like Hanoi, added the diplomat.

Welcoming the delegation, Quy said collaborative activities between Vietnam and Sweden as well as Swedish localities and Hanoi are on the rise but still fall short of potentials.

The official called for Swedish investments in local high-tech and eco-friendly projects in building smart city and infrastructure, particularly public transport.-VNA
