The remark was made by Chairman of Hanoi municipal People’s Committee Nguyen Duc Chung during his reception with Park Won Soon, Special envoy of the RoK’s President and Mayor of Seoul, and a delegation who are paying a working visit to Vietnam.
At the meeting, Chairman Nguyen Duc Chung congratulated the RoK on electing a new President and conveyed his belief that under the leadership of the new President, the relationship between Vietnam and the RoK, in particular between Hanoi and Seoul, would be elevated to new heights.
He hoped that for their part the RoK would also create favourable conditions for Vietnamese students to study in their country, as well as assist Hanoi in the administrative reform process, e-government building and the development of startup models for young people.
The Chairman of Hanoi municipal People’s Committee Chung called for the RoK’s investors to commit more investment to Vietnam in general and the capital in particular, especially in the fields of urban areas, transport infrastructure and tourism, in the near future.
Seoul Mayor Park Won Soon expressed his sincere thanks for the warm welcome given by the Hanoi People’s Committee, as well as agreeing to the annual organisation of ‘Hanoi Cultural Days in Seoul” and vice versa.
On this occasion, he invited the Chairman of Hanoi municipal People’s Committee Chung to visit and work in Seoul in the near future, in order to exchange cooperation on issues of mutual interest to the two countries, such as urban areas, planning, education, tourism and starts-up.
Currently, the RoK has around 1,200 enteprises investing in Hanoi with a total registered capital of US$5.88 billion, topping the list of foreign direct investment (FDI) investors in the capital city.
