Speaker of the Uruguayan Chamber of Representatives Anibal Pereyra left Hanoi on January 22, successfully concluding his four-day official visit to Vietnam at the invitation of National Assembly Chairman Nguyen Sinh Hung.

Speaker Anibal Pereyra and NA Chairman Hung held talks, during which a cooperation agreement between the two countries’ legislative bodies was signed.

The Speaker met with Deputy Prime Minister Pham Binh Minh, and made a tour of the port city of Hai Phong and had a working session with the municipal People Committee’s leaders.

At these meetings, Vietnamese leaders affirmed that Anibal Pereyra’s visit to Vietnam will open prospects for all-around cooperation between the two nations in the near future.
