So said Truong Thi Anh, Deputy Chairwoman of the Ho Chi Minh city People’s Council, during a reception for the Republic of Korea’s Gyeonggi provincial Council led by Kim Won-ki, Deputy Chairman of the Council, on a visit to the city.

During the reception, Ms Anh confirmed that the Korean delegation’s visit would contribute to further reinforcing the relationship and mutual understanding between the two localities.

She also stressed that based on the memorandum of understanding establishing the friendly and cooperative relationship between the two countries signed in April, the Ho Chi Minh city People’s Committee hoped to increase cooperation with Gyeonggi province, especially in exchanges of delegations and experience in local authority management.
