Prime Minister receives RoK legislator

Hanoi, May 19 (VNA) – Vietnam wishes to tap the expansive cooperative prospects with the Republic of Korea (RoK) towards achieving 70 billion USD in trade before 2020, Prime Minister Nguyen Tan Dung told a member of the RoK National Assembly Ahn Sang-soo in a meeting held in Hanoi on May 19.

With the recently-signed bilateral free trade agreement, the host said Vietnam looks forward to strengthening bilateral cooperation across the board for mutual benefits, on par with their strategic partnership.

He pledged all possible support to Korean investors in Vietnam and asked the RoK to resume receiving Vietnamese workers and provide assistance to Vietnamese nationals in the country.

Ahn, who is also member of the RoK – Vietnam Friendship Association, promised to encourage Korean investors to conduct business in Vietnam, lobby the welcoming of Vietnamese labourers, and facilitate initiatives to assimilate the Vietnamese community into the RoK.

He also assured the host that he will convey his suggestions to President Park Geun-hye upon his return to the RoK.
