During a reception in Hanoi on December 20 for the USDP Chairman, the NA Chairwoman expressed her delight at the traditional friendship between Vietnam and Myanmar, especially the upgrade of bilateral ties to a comprehensive cooperative partnership level during Communist Party of Vietnam General Secretary Nguyen Phu Trong’s state visit to Myanmar in August 2017.

She also recalled the warm reception given by Myanmar’s top legislator during her visit in September 2016.

Chairman Than Htay affirmed that the USDP will actively contribute to ties between Myanmar and Vietnamese lawmakers, as well as the two legislatures.

Previously on December 19, Politburo member and Deputy Prime Minister Vuong Dinh Hue hosted the Myanmar delegation. Both sides expressed their delight at the development of bilateral ties over the past years, especially in economy, investment, trade, energy, agriculture, and finance-banking, as well as joint work in regional, ASEAN, and global forums.

During the stay, the Myanmar delegation held meetings with leaders of the Party Central Committee’s Organisation Commission and Inspection Commission, as well as the Vietnam-Myanmar Friendship Association. They also visited the northern province of Quang Ninh and several economic and cultural establishments in Vietnam.
