HAØ NOÄI — Pres­i­dent Traàn Ñaïi Quan­gurg ed Vieät Nam and Uzbek­istan to fully tap their co-op­er­a­tion po­ten­tial in var­i­ous fields while re­ceiv­ing Uzbek­istan’s Deputy Prime Min­is­ter and Min­is­ter of Agri­cul­ture and Wa­ter Re­sources Mirzaev Zoyir in HaøNoäi yes­ter­day.

He sug­gested the two sides work out mea­sures to boost twoway trade, which stood at US$37.42 mil­lion in 2016, via the in­ter gov­ern­men­tal com­mit­tee on eco­nomic-trade and science- tech­nol­ogy co-op­er­a­tion.

The Pres­i­dent also rec­om­mended step­ping up af­fil­i­a­tion in spe­cific realms such as gar­ment-tex­tile, footwear, cot­ton and fiber pro­duc­tion, farm pro­duce, seafood, plant va­ri­eties, an­i­mal breed­ing, and oil and gas.

Apart from in­creas­ing high­level del­e­ga­tion ex­changes for bet­ter mu­tual un­der­stand­ing and trust, Vieät Nam and Uzbek­istan should ex­pand co­op­er­a­tion in cul­ture, tourism, and ed­u­ca­tion-train­ing, he said.

He called on Uzbek­istan to con­tinue sup­port­ing and co­or­di­nat­ing with Vieät Nam at mul­ti­lat­eral fo­rums in the re­gion and the world at large.

For his part, Deputy PM Mirzaev Zoyir said the on­go­ing visit of the Uzbek­istan i del­e­ga­tion is in­tended to study Vieät Nam’s ex­pe­ri­ence in so­cio-eco­nomic de­vel­op­ment. Uzbek­istan wants to en­hance co-op­er­a­tion with Vieät Nam in pol­i­tics, eco­nom­ics, trade and in­vest­ment, specif­i­cally in cul­ti­va­tion, pro­cessin­gand ex­port­ing farm pro­duce, footwear, and ap­parel prod­ucts, he added.

The coun­try is also keen to fur­ther bi­lat­eral co-op­er­a­tion in per­son­nel train­ing and shar­ing know-how in the sus­tain­able and ef­fec­tive use of wa­ter re­sources, he said.

The guest handed a let­ter from Uzbek­istan’s Pres­i­dent Shavkat Mirziy­oyev to Pres­i­dent Quang, ex­press­ing his wish to propel the two na­tions’ friend­ship and co-op­er­a­tion for­ward, and invit­ing Pres­i­dent Quang to pay a State-level visit to Uzbek­istan. —
