Prime Minister Nguyen Xuan Phuc showed his support for co-operation in satellite technology, aviation, railways development in Hanoi, education and culture with France at his meeting with French Ambassador to Vietnam Jean Noel Poirier in Hanoi on August 25.

He expected that President Francois Hollande’s upcoming visit to Vietnam will cement bilateral relations, especially when the two countries are working towards a comprehensive strategic partnership.

The current strategic partnership prioritizes economic co-operation so the two sides need to continuously work out orientations for their major co-operative fields to meet the respective countries’ development needs, the leader said.

Ambassador Jean Noel Poirier stressed that the visit by President Francois Hollande will mark a strong development in the two countries’ relations and usher in new co-operative prospects for the two countries.

The visit will demonstrate an affirmation that France continues to accompany Vietnam in its development process as it did over the past 20 years, the diplomat said.

He expressed his hope that the two countries will push for stronger connection in aviation, especially that between Airbus and Vietnamese carriers, as well as urban railways, education, and culture./.
