Vietnamese, Canadian people expand exchanges

Hanoi, March 30 (VNA) – The Vietnam – Canada Friendship Association (VCFA) and Embassy Connections Canada (ECC) should continue facilitating visits to expand contact and support businesses and entities in practical projects, ECC President Jerry Sherman suggested.

In a meeting with Deputy Health Minister and VCFA President Nguyen Viet Tien in Hanoi on March 30, Sherman informed the host about his activities during the Vietnam visit.

Tien, for his part, introduced the role and activities of the Vietnam Union of Friendship Organisations and the VCFA in promoting understanding, friendship and collaboration between the Vietnamese and people worldwide.

On the back of the 40-year friendship between Vietnam and Canada, he hoped that the ECC leader’s working visit affords a chance for the two sides to extend business contacts, contributing to bilateral practical cooperation.

The two sides discussed issues involving organic agriculture, education, culture, arts and trade cooperation, as well as foreign non-governmental organisations’ activities in Vietnam.
