HANOI, November 21 (Itar-Tass) — Russia’s First Deputy Prime Minister Igor Shuvalov will meet on Monday with Vietnamese leadership to discuss the development of Russian-Vietnamese ties in economy, trade, investments and the energy sector.
Shuvalov, who heads the Russian side of the bilateral intergovernmental commission for trade, economic and scientific cooperation, will hold negotiations with the Vietnamese head of the commission, Deputy Prime Minister Hoang Trung Hai.
He is also scheduled to meet with Prime Minister of Vietnam Nguyen Tan Dung, President Truong Tan Sang and Secretary-General of the Vietnamese Communist Party’s Central Committee, Nguyen Phu Trong.
Talks of the two co-chairmen will focus on prospects to boost the amounts of bilateral trade and economic ties as well as cooperation in the sphere of high technologies, including the construction with Russia’s participation of the first nuclear power plant in Vietnam.
Atomic energy is one of the most promising directions in relations between the two countries. A memorandum of understanding between Russia’s Rosatom state corporation and Vietnam’s EVN corporation on cooperation within the framework of the project to build a nuclear power plant in Vietnam was signed in December 2009.
In October 2010 the sides signed an intergovernmental agreement on the construction of a nuclear power plant in Vietnam. Rosatom’s Director General Sergei Kiriyenko accompanies the first deputy prime minister in his current trip to Vietnam.
Apart from the energy sector, the two co-chairmen of the intergovernmental commission will discuss cooperation in the sphere of finance, telecommunications, science, education and personnel training.
The Russian delegation includes Deputy Minister of Economic Development Andrei Slepnyov, Deputy Finance Minister Sergei Storchak, Deputy Minister of Communications Oleg Dukhovnitsky and Deputy Minister of Education and Science Igor Remorenko.
