(VOV) – Vietnamese Deputy Prime Minister Vu Van Ninh on Tuesday received Governor of China’s Yunnan province Li Jiheng within the framework of his visit to the province to attend the first China-South Asia Expo and the China Import & Export Fair in the province’s Kunming city.
Mr. Ninh said the two sides still carry a lot of cooperation potential, suggesting they continue seeking measures to further boost ties in the fields of economics, trade, tourism and culture, particularly the creation of favorable conditions for both sides’ businesses to expand cooperation.
The Deputy Prime Minister affirmed that the Vietnamese Government maintains their support, and creates favorable conditions, for Vietnam’s northern provinces to strengthen cooperation with China’s southern localities, including Yunnan. Reflecting his words are the more than 80 Vietnamese businesses participating the on-going Kunming fair, the biggest number among ASEAN participating countries. The Deputy Prime Minister added Vietnam is also working hard on the construction of Hanoi-Lao Cai, Hanoi-Quang Ninh highways and related railways to facilitate goods exchange and the travel of people between the two countries. Earlier, the Vietnamese delegation visited the Vietnamese Consulate General in Kunming city.
