Hanoi (VNA) –
The cooperation potential between Hanoi and Canadian cities in trade, tourism, education and culture has yet to be fully tapped, said Chairman of the municipal People’s Committee Nguyen Duc Chung.

He made the statement at a reception for outgoing Canadian Ambassador to Vietnam Ping Kitnikone in the capital city on August 2.

Chung congratulated Kitnikone on completing her working tenure in Vietnam and recognised positive outcomes in the connection of high-level delegations between Hanoi and Canadian cities.

He hoped the diplomat in any position would continue working to develop Canada’s relations with Vietnam and Hanoi in particular.

Kitnikone affirmed that she will do her utmost to enhance bilateral ties.

She noted that the Embassy of Canada had implemented the campaign to prevent plastic waste and received enthusiastic coordination from the capital city.

The ambassador said her successor will continue strengthening relations between Vietnam and Canada and working with Hanoi to celebrate the 45th founding anniversary of bilateral diplomatic ties and boost cooperation in fields of common interest.-VNA
