Vietnam and Norway should expedite state visits and information and experience exchanges between legislators to boost co-operation between the countries’ legislative bodies, said National Assembly Vice Chairwoman Tong Thi Phong.
Vietnam asked Norway to support the country in coping with climate change, forestation, clean and renewable energy development and encourage Norwegian businesses to invest in Viet Nam, she said while receiving visiting Chairwoman of the Norwegian Parliament’s Standing Committee of Family and Cultural Affairs yesterday.
Phong expressed her thanks for Norway’s valuable assistance that it provided to Viet Nam when the country was fighting for national independence and for the Official Development Assistance it’s given to the country that has helped reduce poverty.
Gunn Karin Gjul said she would work to boost relations and co-operation between the two countries and national assemblies and hoped Norway would support Viet Nam as
the country combats the effects of climate change, rising sea levels and natural disasters.
