VGP - Vice Chairman of the Ho Chi Minh City People’s Committee Tran Vinh Tuyen in Ho Chi Minh city on November 9 received senior officials of the Administrative Control Authority (ACA) of Egypt led by ACA deputy minister of state Hamed Abdel Fattah Hememy.

At the reception, ACA deputy minister of state Hamed Abdel Fattah Hememy noted his delegation had fruitful working sessions with relevant agencies of Viet Nam, including the HCM City Inspectorate. Notably, they exchanged experience in corruption prevention and control.

Apart from administrative supervision, Egypt wants to tighten links with Viet Nam and HCM City in many other spheres. Egypt values Viet Nam’s experience in economic and tourism development and wants to learn from it, he said. 

In turn, Vice Chairman of the Ho Chi Minh City People’s Committee Tran Vinh Tuyen applauded Egypt’s “Look East” policy, which aims to expand relations with Asian countries, including Viet Nam. Viet Nam-Egypt ties have been growing, especially since a visit to the Southeast Asian nation by Egyptian President Abdel Fattah el-Sisi last September, opening up development prospects for both sides. 

He also highly valued the memorandum of understanding on cooperation for 2015-2020 signed between the Vietnamese Government Inspectorate and the ACA. The two countries have many conditions and opportunities to share experience, enhance mutual understanding and boost cooperation between their ministries and sectors.

Mr Tuyen also expressed his hope that the Egyptian delegation’s working visit will help strengthen partnerships between the two countries as well as between Egypt and HCM City in the fields that the African nation is strong at.

Currently, Egypt is the second biggest African trade partner of Viet Nam with bilateral trade reaching US$316 million in 2016.
