The visit is made at the invitation of President Tran Dai Quang.
Friendship between Vietnam and Myanmar has been reinforced and developed in recent years.
The two sides have defined 12 priority areas of cooperation, including agriculture, industrial crop, aquaculture, finance, aviation, telecommunications, oil and gas, mining, automobile assembling and manufacturing, construction, and investment-trade.
As of June 2016 Vietnam was the 10th largest foreign investor in Myanmar with 11 projects.
Two-way trade hit 299 million USD in the first seven months of this year, up 15.9 percent year-on-year. Annually, the two countries hold trade fairs to bolster trade and investment cooperation.
Most recently, National Assembly Chairwoman Nguyen Thi Kim Ngan made an official visit to Myanmar late last month at the invitation of her Myanmar counterpart Mahn Win Khaing Than./.
