On November 8, the Grand Duke of Luxembourg, Henri, and his entourage visited the central province of Thua Thien-Hue.
At a reception for Grand Duke of Luxembourg Henri, the Chairman of the Thua Thien Hue provincial People’s Committee, Nguyen Van Cao said Luxemburg-funded projects have greatly helped Thua Thien-Hue develop rural infrastructure and tourism facilities.
Thua Thien-Hue will create favourable conditions for Luxembourg businesses to invest in the province, especially in its potential areas such as tourism, science and technology and health care, Cao said.
Grand Duke of Henri highly appreciated the effective cooperation between the province and Luxemburg organizations in carrying out projects in Vietnam, and said he hopes Luxembourg will maintain and provide more aid for the province and Vietnam as a whole.
