A leading Vietnamese legislator has proposed that Myanmar continue to facilitate Vietnamese businesses’ efforts to invest in the country, pledging that Vietnam will help Myanmar investors in return.

Deputy Chairman of the National Assembly Huynh Ngoc Son made the proposal during a meeting with a delegation from the Myanmar-Vietnam Friendship Parliamentarians’ Group in Hanoi on January 10.

Deputy Chairman Son said the visit by the delegation, led by the group’s President Nay Win Tun, is of great significance as it takes place at a time when Vietnam-Myanmar relations have been increasingly strengthened.

He called for closer coordination between the two legislative bodies at regional and international inter-parliamentary forums.

Son spoke highly of the friendship group’s establishment, saying it will play an important role in consolidating the friendship and exchange between the two legislatures.

Nay Win Tun said his delegation’s visit aims to boost links between the two parliaments as well as step up exchanges in agriculture, aquaculture, finance-banking, aviation, telecommunications, oil and gas, mining and power generation.

He expressed his pleasure at the socio-economic achievements made by Vietnam over recent years and affirmed that Myanmar always attaches importance to boosting multifacefed ties with Vietnam.-VNA
