Hanoi (VNA) – Australian Prime Minister Anthony Albanese had lunch at an eatery in Hanoi's Old Quarter on June 3, where he tried the world-famous Vietnamese sandwich “banh mi”, a favourite street food of many Vietnamese people and foreign tourists, and drank “bia hoi”, a locally brewed beer often used by Hanoians on hot summer days.
“Banh mi” is ranked 7th among the best street foods in the world by TasteAtlas, a website dedicated to discovering fresh ingredients, traditional dishes, and authentic restaurants around the world.
The PM commended the Vietnamese cuisine with diverse and unique dishes, and expressed his delight at sentiments and hospitality of local people.
PM Albanese arrived at Noi Bai International Airport in Hanoi at noon on June 3, beginning a two-day official visit to Vietnam at the invitation of his Vietnamese counterpart Pham Minh Chinh.
Right after his arrival, the PM visited the Hanoi campus of Australia's RMIT University.
This is the first official visit to Vietnam by PM Albanese since he took office and only two months after a State-level visit by Australian Governor-General David Hurley, showing Australia’s great attention to the Southeast Asian nation.
Within the framework of the visit, PM Albanese and the Australian delegation are scheduled to laid wreaths in tribute to late President Ho Chi Minh at his mausoleum in Hanoi; hold talks with PM Chinh and meet with the press; meet with General Secretary of the Communist Party of Vietnam Nguyen Phu Trong, President Vo Van Thuong and National Assembly Chairman Vuong Dinh Hue.
The Australian leader is also scheduled to join with PM Chinh in an exchange event with the women's football teams of Australia and Vietnam; go for a tour of Hanoi; and visit RMIT University and United Nations International School (UNIS) in Hanoi.
The visit by PM Albanese is expected to reinforce political trust and multifaceted cooperation between the two countries, especially in the fields of politics, diplomacy, security, defence, economy, investment, labour, technology, climate change response, and people-to-people exchanges./.
