Indian Lower House Speaker Om Birla arrived in Hanoi on April 19, starting a three-day official visit to Vietnam at the invitation of Vietnamese National Assembly Chairman Vuong Dinh Hue.
On the afternoon of the same day, NA Chairman Hue hosted an official welcome for Speaker Om Birla. After the welcome, the two leaders led their delegations to join talks.
Chairman Hue appreciated the visit by the Indian Speaker Om Birla, especially in the context the two countries are celebrating the 50th anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic relations.
Vietnam considers India a global power and supports the country to play a greater role in multilateral institutions, Hue said, adding that Vietnam also welcomes India to step up its “Act East” policy and deeply participate in the mechanisms led by ASEAN.
Noting that the two countries have many similar development goals, Speaker Om Birla suggested the two sides promote cooperation in the fields of trade, investment, science and technology, services, digital transformation, among others.
