Quan said the visit would strengthen ties between Ho Chi Minh City and Tulcea county as well as Vietnam and Romania since its establishment 65 years ago.
Last year, two-way trade between Ho Chi Minh City and Romania hit 39 million USD. In January-October, Ho Chi Minh City exported 13.5 million USD worth of goods to Romania, mostly coffee, pepper and vegetables while importing pharmaceutical materials, animal feed and fertilisers worth more than 7.4 million USD.
The host called on Romani to appoint an honorary consular and open a commercial office in Ho Chi Minh City to foster bilateral connections.
Horia said his visit was to expand links with Vietnamese localities in the fields of trade, investment and tourism.
Tulcea is eyeing the opening of an eco-tourism centre in the southern province of Ben Tre which already established ties with the county, he added./.
