A high-level delegation of the Vietnamese National Assembly, led by its Vice Chairman Uong Chu Luu, is paying a working visit to Romania in order to intensify the traditional friendship between the two legislatures and enhance their coordination at multilateral forums.

During his talks on May 3 with Carmen-Ileana Mihalcescu, Vice-Chairwoman of the Chamber of Deputies of the Parliament of Romania, NA Vice Chairman Luu affirmed Vietnam’s policy of developing relations with its traditional friends in Central and Eastern Europe, including Romania.

He appreciated the effective coordination and mutual support between the two countries in the international arena, especially within the framework of the United Nations, while asking Romania to continue backing Vietnam’s candidacy for a non-permanent seat at the UN Security Council for 2020-2021.

Regarding the cooperation between the two legislative bodies, NA Vice Chairman Luu stated that the ties have developed continuously, contributing greatly to the Vietnam-Romania relations.

The Vietnamese NA Vice Chairman took the occasion to thank Romania for training thousands of Vietnamese experts in different aspects, while currently providing 10 scholarships a year for Vietnamese students.

Mentioning Romania’s intention to recruit 2,000 Vietnamese labourers in 2018, NA Vice Chairman Luu said that there is good potential for their bilateral partnership in labour as Vietnam has a skilled and hardworking workforce who will meet the Romanian market’s requirements.

For her part, Mihalcescu affirmed that Vietnam is an important partner and market of Romania in Asia.

Romania and Vietnam should maintain their close coordination and mutual support at regional and international forums, particularly the UN Security Council, she stated, adding that Romania backs the early signing of the EVFTA between the EU and Vietnam.

At the talks with Deputy Speaker of the Senate Claudiu Manda, the Vietnamese NA Vice Chairman hailed Romania’s socio-economic development achievements and its integration into the European Union.

Claudiu Manda suggested that the two sides discuss specific measures to intensify their multi-faceted cooperation, while affirming that the Romanian Senate supports the promotion of bilateral economic ties.

He affirmed that Vietnam holds a special important role for Romania in Southeast Asia.

Earlier, the Vietnamese legislator had meetings with the heads of the Chamber of Deputies’ Committee for Legal Matters, Discipline, and Immunities and the Romania-Vietnam Friendship Parliamentarians’ Group. - NDO
