During the talks with the Canadian legislator in Ottawa on December 5 as part of his four-day working visit to the country, NA Vice Chairman Ty affirmed Vietnam always treasures the relations with Canada and hopes to continue increasing collaboration with the north American country in the time ahead.

While speaking highly of effective cooperation between the two nations’ legislative bodies, Ty said the bilateral ties have flourished across the fields in recent time, especially in trade, investment, science, and education.

The Vietnamese NA backs the strengthening and development of multifaceted cooperation with Canada through improving the system of legal documents, thus creating favourable legal framework for foreign businesses, including those from Canada, to operate in Vietnam, he reaffirmed.

He also highlighted the important role of Canada in the region and the world, saying that the Vietnamese NA applauds enhanced connection between Canada and countries in the Asia-Pacific region, including Vietnam, contributing to peace, stability, cooperation and development in the region.

For his part, Bruce Stanton spoke of Vietnam’s socio-economic development as well as the country’s increasing position in the region and the world.

He suggested stronger cooperation between the two countries, saying that he hopes the two sides will concretise measures and proposals to foster the two-way trade.

Canada is willing to share experience in law making, supervision and settlement of voters’ complaints, he affirmed, hoping that through the relations between the two legislatures, Canada and Vietnam will step up all-round cooperation.

The establishment of friendship parliamentarian groups between the two countries is a good way to bolster links between the two legislatures, he said.

The two sides agreed to enhance the exchange of all-level visits between the two legislative bodies, and their coordination in examining and supervising the implementation of agreements signed between the governments, ministries and sectors of the two countries.-VNA
