Hanoi People’s Council Chairwoman Ngo Thi Doan Thanh met with a visiting delegation of the Seoul Metropolitan Council led by its Chairman Kim Myung Soo, in Hanoi on September 18.

The visit took place in the context that Vietnam and the Republic of Korea (RoK) are looking forward to the 20 th anniversary of the establishment of the two countries’ diplomatic ties (December 22, 1992-2012).

Speaking at the meeting, Thanh said the cooperation between Hanoi and Seoul, the capital city of the leading economic partner of Vietnam, have contributed to deepening and diversifying the relations between the two countries.

Thanh noted that Seoul has helped Hanoi set up the electronic government system and make urbanisation plans for areas along the Red River banks. Many RoK-funded projects in Hanoi are operating effectively, which have reflected the fine cooperation for mutual development between the two capital cities.

Visiting Hanoi for the first time, Kim Myung Soo expressed his delight to see the city’s development, saying that the visit of his delegation aims to share experience and strengthen cooperation with Hanoi, for the mutual development of the two localities.-VNA
