VGP - Chairman of the HCM City People’s Committee Nguyen Thanh Phong in Ho Chi Minh City on November 9 received Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau.

At the reception, the chairman noted with pleasure active developments in relations between Viet Nam and Canada over the past time, especially cooperation in trade, investment and education. 

Vietnamese people always keep in mind Canada’s valuable support to Viet Nam during the country’s struggle for national independence as well as the present cause of reform, international integration and national development, the official said. 

Mr. Phong stressed that Ho Chi Minh City has established cooperative and friendly ties with 47 localities worldwide, including Toronto of Canada. 

The city wishes to join hands with Canada to boost cooperation and friendship in delegation exchange and economy, trade, urban management and education, he said. 

In turn, the PM said he was impressed by strong and dynamic development of the Vietnamese southern metropolis, especially in trade and investment activities. 

On the basis of the newly-established comprehensive partnership between Canada and Viet Nam, Canadian and Vietnamese localities, particularly Ho Chi Minh City, have many opportunities to enhance collaboration in trade, investment, education and people-to-people exchange, bringing pragmatic interests to people of the two countries, for peace and development of the region and the world.
