They reached consensus on increasing the exchange of delegations at all levels and on all channels to further strengthen political trust as the basis for developing the Vietnam-Iran relations across the fields.
NA Chairman Hue proposed that the two sides further facilitate market access for each other’s strong products, especially farm produce and fishery products, organize more investment and trade promotion and business matching events, and encourage partnership in education-training, science-technology and culture-arts.
To effectively roll out those measures, the two sides agreed to coordinate to well prepare for the 10th meeting of the Vietnam-Iran Joint Committee and expedite other bilateral cooperative mechanisms to review and seek measures to enhance cooperation efficiency.
The Iranian President hoped that the two parliaments will support and continue to play an active role in reviewing and supervising the implementation of the two countries’ agreements.
