MOSCOW, February 16. /TASS/. The delegation of Russia’s Federation Council led by its speaker, Valentina Matviyenko, will pay an official visit to Vietnam on February 20-22, the press service of the upper house of the Russian parliament reported on Thursday.
"Meetings with that country’s top officials are planned during the meeting," the press service said, adding that talks with Chairman of Vietnam’s National Asembly, Nguyen Thi Kim Ngan, are to be held. The two sides are expected to discuss bilateral ties at the parliamentary level.
The parties will also raise the issues of trade and economic cooperation, cooperation in education, science and tourism. The senators are also planning to discuss the possibility of expanding ties between Russian regions and Vietnam’s provinces.
Matviyenko earlier told Russia’s Izvestia daily that the potential of interregional cooperation between the two countries is quite high. "In my view, broad opportunities are opening up for investment cooperation, setting up joint ventures in various fields - in the energy sector, the machine-building industry and innovation. Thanks to the expansion of direct contacts between Russia’s regions and Vietnam’s provinces, the volume of bilateral trade may grow as a whole," the speaker said.
