Vietnam, Egypt boost legislative cooperation
At the working sessions, Son affirmed that as an active member of ASEAN and the international community, Vietnam pursues a policy of befriending all nations. In its position as Chair of ASEAN and the ASEAN Inter-parliamentary Assembly (AIPA), Vietnam values and wishes to boost the traditional friendship and cooperation with Egypt for mutual development, he said.
Son said the two-way trade turnover between Vietnam and Egypt , at 168 million USD in 2009, did not match the two countries’ relations. He added that the two sides need to enhance cooperation in marketing studies and seeking out measures to boost bilateral trade.
The Egyptian side highly appreciated Vietnam ’s role and miraculous development.
They stated that Egypt wished to boost bilateral ties with Vietnam , particularly relations between the two parliaments, focusing on boosting cooperation at international parliamentary forums, exchanges of visits and information on international issues.
The two sides also agreed to take actions to raise the efficiencies of signed agreements between the two countries, as well as create favourable conditions for enterprises of the two countries to do businesses./.
