PM Nguyen Tan Dzung begins visit to Poland
Before leaving Prague for Warsaw, Vietnamese Prime Minister Nguyen Tan Dzung on September 13 met with Czech President Vaclav Klaus, visited the Sapa Trade Centre and met with representatives of the Vietnamese community there.
Mr Dzung told President Klaus at the meeting that his visit aimed to promote agreements reached during the President’s visit to Vietnam in October 2006.
Meanwhile, Mr Klaus praised the results of talks between Mr Dzung and his Czech counterpart Mirek Topolanek, considering measures agreed at the talks a firm foundation for strengthening the friendship and cooperation between the two countries.
Mr Dzung briefed Mr Klaus on the two countries’ preparations to implement the Czech-funded projects to build a cement plant, a brewery and a 3,000MW power plant complex in Vietnam. He proposed that the President encourage and create favourable conditions for Czech businesses to expand investment cooperation with their partners in Vietnam.
He also thanked the Czech Government and State for supporting the Vietnamese community in the country.
The same day, Mr Dzung visited the Sapa Trade Centre – the largest established by the Vietnamese community in Prague. He shared difficulties experienced by Vietnamese nationals in stabilising their lives in the Czech Republic and pledged to provide assistance to them.
“The Party, State and Government consider overseas Vietnamese an integral part of the Vietnamese nation,” said Mr Dzung.
He praised the community’s efforts to integrate well into the local community and encouraged them to make further contributions to the homeland.
“Each Vietnamese national in the Czech Republic must help promote economic, investment and trade cooperation as well as mutual understanding between the two countries,” said Mr Dzung.
At midnight, PM Nguyen Tan Dzung flew to Warsaw, beginning his official visit to Poland at the invitation of Polish PM Jaroslaw Kaczynski. (VOV)
