At a reception on March 29 for Hungarian Ambassador to Vietnam Ory Csaba and Tombor Baslint, Chief Negotiator on the Tied Aid Credit programme under the Hungarian Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade, the leader of Hanoi expressed the importance of the project in improving the capital’s clean water supplies.
He added that the city has prepared some basic steps to implement the project.
For his part, Tombor Baslint mentioned the agreement, which includes Hungary’s 500 million EUR (541 million USD) in soft credit to be used for Vietnam ’s projects, including Hanoi’s Red River-based water plant. An agreement on this project was reached during Hungarian Minister of Foreign Affairs and Trade Peter Szijjarto’s visit to Vietnam early this year.
He expressed his hope that the city will create favourable conditions to accelerate the implementation of the water plant project.
During the meeting, Chung and Ory Csaba said they hoped for more developments in the relations between the two capital cities of Hanoi and Budapest./.
