Would you like to tell our readers about the outstanding outcomes of Prime Minister Nguyen Tan Dzung’s visit to Russia, the Czech Republic and Poland?
At the invitation of the Prime Minister of the Russian Federation, the Prime Minister of the Czech Republic and the Prime Minister of the Republic of Poland, Vietnamese Prime Minister Nguyen Tan Dzung and a high-ranking Vietnamese delegation paid official working visits to the three countries from Sep. 9-15.
The visits were to implement the open foreign policies of the Vietnamese Party and State, and increase the exchanges of high-ranking Vietnamese delegations to other countries. Through the visits, the delegation told our friends about Vietnam’s development situation to help them access more information about Vietnam. Also to consolidate mutual reliability, to seek opportunities and measures to promote cooperation in almost all areas including: economy, trade, education, culture, science and technology as well as defence and security.
On the occasion, Prime Minister Nguyen Tan Dzung had talks with the three countries’ leaders and the overseas Vietnamese there.
In spite of the short time, we can say the visits were successful.
Firstly, in political relationships: Through negotiations and high-level meetings, the relationship between Vietnam and these other countries have been deepened and consolidated.
Secondly, in economy, trade and investment: During the visits, we signed many agreements and contracts with other countries worth approximately 6 billion US dollars.

In trade, the delegation signed agreements and contracts worth about 3.5 billions US dollars including an agreement on credit to invest in building a hydro electricity factory in Tra Vinh with 3000 MW with 3 billion US dollars and other agreements worth 500 millions US dollars.
In Poland, the two countries’ leaders signed an agreement to provide preferential credit for the shipping industry with 16.47 million Euros. An agreement to extend credit for ship building to VINASHIN reached about 300 million US dollars.
Could you give assessment about contribution of overseas Vietnamese Russian, the Czech Republic and Poland to the bilateral ties?
The PM’s visit is to exchange with the three countries government about live of overseas Vietnamese in these countries and meet oversea Vietnamese there. In talks with oversea Vietnamese there, PM Nguyen Tan Dzung affirmed the standing point of the Party and State that consider overseas Vietnamese an integral part of Vietnamese nations.
PM Nguyen Tan Dzung also asked the local countries’ authorities to support overseas Vietnamese. Overseas Vietnamese are highly praised by these countries’ authority thanks to their hard-working and his positive contribution to the country’ economy as well as the relationship between Vietnam, Czech and Poland. Prime Minister of the Czech Republic said that 48.000 overseas Vietnamese were 48.000 Vietnamese Ambassador to the Czech Republic. It is good outcomes of work for oversea Vietnamese of the delegation during the visit to the three countries.
