    Viet Nam hopes to further its multifaceted co-operation with Tanzania, especially in trade, National Assembly Chairman Chairman Nguyen Phu Trong told a visiting delegation of Tanzanian lawmakers led by the deputy speaker of the Tanzanian Parliament, Anne S Makinda, in Ha Noi yesterday.

    Trong praised the delegation’s visit as a milestone in co-operation relation between the two countries, calling it a great opportunity for the two legislative bodies to exchange experiences.

    Makinda said the visit was a follow-up to fruitful relations between the two countries and expressed her appreciation for the warm welcome from the host country.

    "We have learned many things from Viet Nam through talks and meetings," said Makinda, and she vowed that Tanzanians would share their experiences in environmental protection with Viet Nam.

    Despite geographic distance, Trong said, Viet Nam and Tanzania shared a lot in common in their histories, including resistance wars, and the peoples had had a long relationship.

    He expressed his satisfaction with the talks between the two parliaments and hoped that agreements reached would help further boost exchanges and co-operative relations between the two legislative bodies and peoples of both countries.

    Trong also shared with the Tanzanian delegation the Vietnamese National Assembly’s efforts during the renewal process to improve quality and effectiveness in the areas of lawmaking and legislative oversight.

    Earlier yesterday, National Assembly vice chairman Uong Chu Luu, on receiving the delegation, urged the two countries’ legislative bodies to increase the exchange of high-ranking delegations and support each other at international forums for the benefit of both nations.

    Makinda said she wanted to give healthcare, teaching of basic sciences, agricultural development to solve food shortages, and unemployment top priorities in the co-operation between Viet Nam and her country.

    The Eastern African country also expected to learn from Viet Nam’s experience in poverty reduction, she said.

    Luu also reiterated Viet Nam’s policy to develop ties with all countries and territories as well as international organisations on the principles of independence, self-mastery, equality and settling conflicts through negotiations.

    Makinda praised Viet Nam’s recent economic achievements and said she hoped that Tanzania would increase co-operation with Viet Nam in such areas as agriculture, education and health, as well as exchange experiences in poverty reduction.

    Despite the impacts of the global economic crisis, Viet Nam maintained a growth rate of 6.3 per cent in the first nine months of this year, Luu said, adding that the country always attached great importance to policies that ensured social welfare and supported the poor.

    Later yesterday, the Tanzanian delegation was also received by Deputy Prime Minister and Foreign Minister Pham Gia Khiem, who stated that Viet Nam was ready to work with Tanzania in any field that the country proposed.

    The Tanzania delegation will end its week-long visit next Monday.
