Pierre-Yves Dermagne congratulated the Vietnamese legislative leader on his fruitful meetings with the European Commission (EC) and the European Parliament (EP), especially the signing of a series of contracts and agreements during the two sides' business forums and seminars.
He thanked the Vietnamese top legislator for spending time on receiving leaders of many leading Belgian businesses, thus meeting the desire to develop bilateral cooperation, especially in economics, trade and investment.
Noting that this is his first trip to Europe and several European countries as the Chairman of the Vietnamese N.A., Hue affirmed that the trip's outcomes will serve as a premise to enhance Vietnam's comprehensive collaboration with the E.U. and its member states.
He stated that Vietnam attaches great importance to developing cooperation with Belgium – an important member of the E.U. – and wishes to strengthen the ties in all fields and via various channels.
Hue proposed the two sides maintain successful cooperation at the U.N. Security Council and U.N. agencies, and support the early ratification of the E.U.-Vietnam Investment Protection Agreement (EVIPA), which is expected to help promote investment, and create favorable conditions for enterprises to exploit cooperation potential in the fields of energy, renewable energy, and seaports.
Regarding agriculture, he emphasized the need to implement strategic cooperation contents agreed by the two ministers of agriculture, such as the import and export of fruits and agricultural products with high quality and clear origin, the facilitation of the removal of the E.C.'s "yellow card" on illegal, unreported and unregulated (IUU) fishing to ensure the livelihoods and life of Vietnamese people, and the maintenance of the supply of exports to the E.U. to serve its people.
The Vietnamese N.A. Chairman thanked the Belgian Government for providing 100,000 doses of COVID-19 vaccine for Vietnam and suggested Belgium maintain support through the COVAX mechanism, giving priority to Vietnam in vaccine access and transferring redundant vaccines to Vietnam.
The Belgian Deputy PM took note of the guest's proposals and wished that Vietnam will support large infrastructure projects invested by Belgium, thereby contributing to Vietnam’s development strategy.
He affirmed to support strategic cooperation in the agricultural field to open up new orientations for agricultural products as well as assisting research in this area.
