Pres­i­dent Tröông Taán Sang and his In­dian coun­ter­part, Pranab Mukher­jee, agreed to in­ten­sify the Viet­namese-In­dian strate­gic part­ner­ship.

The fo­cus will be on pol­i­tics, de­fence, se­cu­rity, eco­nomics, sci­ence-tech­nol­ogy, oil and gas, cul­ture, peo­ple-to-peo­ple ex­changes, and re­gional and mul­ti­lat­eral co-op­er­a­tion.

The In­dian Pres­i­dent also met Party Gen­eral Sec­re­tary Nguyeãn Phuù Troïng who said the visit showed the Pres­i­dent and the new gov­ern­ment of In­dia con­tin­ued to place im­por­tance on de­vel­op­ing the strate­gic part­ner­ship with Vieät Nam.

On the same day, Prime Min­is­ter Nguyeãn Taán Duõng met In­dian Pres­i­dent Mukher­jee. He said the Viet­namese Gov­ern­ment would cre­ate favourable con­di­tions for In­dian firms to invest in Vieät Nam, es­pe­cially in the oil, gas and elec­tric­ity sec­tors, whilst ac­cel­er­at­ing the launch of a di­rect air route be­tween the two coun­tries.

Na­tional Assem­bly Chair­man Nguyeãn Sinh Huøng also met Pres­i­dent Mukher­jee, say­ing that stronger co-or­di­na­tion be­tween Vieät Nam and In­dia would con­trib­ute to peace, se­cu­rity and pros­per­ity in the re­gion.
