Right upon his arrival in Seoul on December 4, President Nguyen Xuan Phuc had a series of meetings with organisations which have made significant contributions to the Vietnam-Republic of Korea (RoK) friendship, economic-cultural cooperation, and people-to-people exchanges.

Hosting a representative of the Ly family in the RoK, the President affirmed that the Vietnamese State and people are happy about and proud of the family’s success as well as contributions to both nations and their relations.

The State leader recommended they continue organising delegations to visit Vietnam on holidays, introduce Vietnam’s market and investment conditions, encourage Korean businesses to invest in the country, and promote Vietnamese culture among Korean people, making an important contribution to the bonding between the nations.

The representative said with the support of the Vietnamese embassy, the family’s activities for exchange and cooperation promotion have been launched smoothly and effectively.

Expressing his delight at the strong development of the nations’ ties, he wishes to receive further attention from the President and relevant Vietnamese agencies, especially regarding projects to promote Vietnam-RoK economic and people-to-people exchanges that are being implemented by his family.

It is also necessary to encourage Korean firms to step up investment and trade cooperation with Vietnam; and to support the 200,000-member Vietnamese community in the RoK, especially families of Vietnamese brides married to Korean citizens, the President noted.

KOVIFA's representative hoped more assistance from Vietnam’s competent agencies, sectors and social organisations will come in aid of its friendship exchange activities.
