On this occasion, Head of the NA Committee for External Relations Nguyen Van Giau talked with the media about the outcomes of the visits, stating that this was the first Europe tour made by the top legislator with the aim to further deepen Viet Nam’s relations with its traditional partners.

In each country, Chairwoman Ngan and the Vietnamese delegation discussed issues of mutual concern with its leaders and officials.

During their talks, both Vietnamese and Swedish top legislators agreed that the two countries have yet to fully tap economic potential.

Speaker of the Swedish parliament Urban Ahlin affirmed that he will work to urge the European Union to early ratify the EU-Viet Nam Free Trade Agreement (EVFTA) so as to open up new cooperation opportunities in the economic field for all related parties.

Hungarian leaders informed the Vietnamese top lawmaker that they have selected Viet Nam as a beneficiary of a framework agreement on a € 440 million credit.

During the meetings between Ngan and Czech leaders, they shared that their country had set forth a strategy towards its traditional friends, with Viet Nam being one of the 12 priority countries.

The Czech side proposed the opening of a direct air route linking Ha Noi to Prague, he said, adding that he will work with the Ministry of Transport on this issue.

After the visits, the legislative body needs to map out plans to supervise the implementation of cooperation agreements signed during the visits, he stated.

The Czech Republic was the final leg of the NA Chairwoman’s Europe tour. Several newspapers in the country ran articles about her activities./.
