NA Chairwoman begins working visit to European Parliament
Apr 04 2019

National Assembly Chairwoman Nguyen Thi Kim Ngan and her delegation arrived in the capital city of Brussels, Belgium on April 3, beginning their working trip to the European Parliament (EP) at the invitation of President Antonio Tajani.

Those among welcoming guests at the airport included Vietnamese Ambassador to Belgium Vu Anh Quang, Chairman of the Belgium – Vietnam Friendship Parliamentarians’ Group Georges Dallemagne, other Belgian officials and overseas Vietnamese representatives in the country. 

Vietnam and the European Union (EU) officially established their diplomatic ties on November 28, 1990. Later in 1996, the EU set up its representative mission in Hanoi. Ties between the Vietnamese NA and the EP have become an important pillar in the Vietnam – EU comprehensive partnership. 

Regular visits, dialogues and exchanges between parliamentarians at multilateral forums have made positive contributions to friendship and cooperation between Vietnam and the EU as well as their legislatures in particular. Both sides also established the Vietnam – EU and the EU – Vietnam friendship parliamentarians’ groups. 

The relationship between the National Assembly of Vietnam and the European Parliament has steadily progressed as a contribution to deepening understanding and promoting cooperative relations by intensifying delegation exchange, sharing law-making experience and sending officials for practice at the EP.  Through the visit, both sides will compare notes on regional and global issues of common concern, parliamentary cooperation between the Vietnam National Assembly and EU member states and the EP and the enhancement of ASEAN-EU relations.
