He made the statement when he hosted a reception for a high-ranking delegation of the Mozambican National Assembly led by its President Esperanca Laurinda Francisco Nhiuane Bias, on June 22.

Expressing his pleasure to receive the Mozambican National Assembly President, he said that Can Tho is located in the heart of the Mekong Delta, downstream of the Mekong River, connecting 6 countries. This is a rich agricultural production area and a key area of the country for fruits and seafood.

“The visit of the President of the National Assembly of the Republic of Mozambique to Vietnam in general and Can Tho City in particular will be a big change in the good relationship between the two countries,” he said.

Mozambican National Assembly President Esperanca Laurinda Francisco Nhiuane Bias thanked the leaders of the Party and State of Vietnam, as well as Can Tho City, for the warm welcome, and highly appreciated the very good relationship between the National Assembly of the two countries through the Memorandum of Understanding on cooperation between Vietnam and Mozambique.

According to Ms. Esperanca Laurinda Francisco Nhiuane Bias, on the occasion of the 47th anniversary of diplomatic relations between Vietnam and Mozambique, the visit aims to raise the level of cooperation between the two countries not only in politics and Government cooperation, but also in cooperation between the two countries. “The two countries have more opportunities for cooperation in the coming time,” she said.

She added she believed that the 13th Congress of the Communist Party of Vietnam will bring better and better life to the Vietnamese people.

On this occasion, she thanked Vietnam for electing Mozambique to the post as a non-permanent member of the UN Security Council, and for sharing experience.

After the meeting, the Mozambican delegation visited Southern Fishery Industries Co., Ltd in Binh Thuy district, which specialises in producing animal feed and processing Tra fish for export. The main markets of the firm are Spain, Brazil, Peru, Canada, China and Japan. Its average export turnover reaches 40 million USD per year./.
