 HCM City (VNA) – Ho Chi Minh City is ready to cooperate with Casablanca city and other localities of Morocco in fields of mutual interests, Chairwoman of the municipal People’s Council Nguyen Thi Quyet Tam told visiting President of the Moroccan House of Representatives Habib El Malki on December 20.

Tam promised that HCM City will create favourable conditions for businesses of the two sides to promote economic and commercial partnership.

She said similarities in the history of struggle to gain national independence shared by Vietnam and Morocco would serve as the basis for the two countries to step up their collaboration in the realms that they have potential and can support each other.

Agreeing with Tam’s view, Habib El Malki said with historical similarities and diverse culture, Morocco and Vietnam, including HCM City, have opportunities to join hands in economy, trade and investment.

The Moroccan leader expressed his hope to establish a friendly cooperative relationship between HCM City and Casablanca, the largest city of Morocco, as well as relations between the city’s business community with its counterpart in Casablanca, contributing to boosting bilateral cooperation in economy and trade.-VNA
