The visit aims to concretise the bilateral comprehensive strategic partnership and deepen multifaceted ties in the context of celebrations for the 45th anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic ties and the 10th anniversary of the strategic partnership next year.

It also looks to extend relations between the Vietnamese and Indian legislatures, laying a foundation for long-term bilateral ties amid Vietnam’s intensive international integration.

Following the visit, Chairwoman Ngan will lead a NA delegation to the United Arab Emirates (UAE) to attend the 11th Global Summit of Women Speakers of Parliament slated for December 11-13 at the invitation of President of the Inter-Parliamentary Union Saber Chowdhury and President of the Federal National Council of the UAE Amal Al Qubaisi.

The Vietnamese delegation’s presence at the summit reflects the country’s policy of active and proactive integration into the world. It aims to improve the stature of Vietnam and its legislature at regional and global parliamentary forums and affirms the Party and State’s gender equality policy./.
