Viet Nam News - - Home Turf -

Party Gen­eral Sec­re­tary Nguyeãn Phuù Troïng urged Vieät Nam and Aus­tralia to bol­ster eco­nomic and trade ties as he wel­comed Speaker of the Aus­tralian House of Rep­re­sen­ta­tives Bron­wyn Bishop dur­ing her of­fi­cial visit to Haø Noäi.

More Aus­tralian support would help Viet­namese firms do business with lo­cal part­ners, es­pe­cially those ac­tive in the min­ing, coal pur­chas­ing and agro-fish­eries sec­tors, he said.

Bishop said she was pleased with the coun­tries' bi­lat­eral friend­ship and co-op­er­a­tion in the spirit of com­pre­hen­sive part­ner­ship, es­pe­cially in ed­u­ca­tion, with 26,000 stu­dents cur­rently tak­ing cour­ses in Aus­tralia.

In another re­cep­tion for vis­it­ing Cuban State Coun­cil Vice Pres­i­dent Lazara Mercedes Lopez Acea, Troïng said Vieät Nam and Cuba should fo­cus on rais­ing co-op­er­a­tion on eco­nomic, trade, sci­en­tific, cul­tural and ed­u­ca­tion mat­ters to a new level.

He said it was nec­es­sary to ed­u­cate young gen­er­a­tions to raise their aware­ness of the sol­i­dar­ity and long-last­ing spe­cial friend­ship be­tween the Par­ties, States and peo­ple of Vieät Nam and Cuba.
