The PM asked Egypt to soon approve the double taxation avoidance agreement (DTAA) signed with Viet Nam, and continue creating favorable conditions for the Viet Nam National Oil and Gas Group (PVN) to seek investment opportunities and get involved in supplying oil and gas related services in Egypt.

2018 marks 55 years of Viet Nam-Egypt  diplomatic ties, he said, urging relevant agencies of both countries to coordinate together in preparing and organizing celebration activities, via enhancing bilateral collaboration as well as people-to-people exchange.

He suggested that the culture ministries of Viet Nam and Egypt implement research on late President Ho Chi Minh’s operations in Egypt, considering this a precious heritage in the enduring friendly relations between the two nations.

On the occasion, PM Phuc thanked the Egyptian side for their active support in evacuating Vietnamese laborers in Libya in 2011 and 2014, whilst calling for continuous support from the Egyptian President so that the two countries would continue achieving positive and substantive results in bilateral cooperation in the future.

Sharing President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi’s stance over Egypt being a gateway for Viet Nam to enter the African and Arab markets, the PM said he would assign the Ministry of Industry and Trade to implement cooperation following this idea, as Viet Nam sees trade and investment as one of the priority fields in its cooperative relations with Egypt.

The Egyptian President stated that his visit aims to consolidate ties with Viet Nam and reiterated Egypt’s respect and wish to expand cooperation with the Southeast Asian country across all spheres.

The visit will also pave the way for new cooperation programmes between the two nations in the future, he said.

On the occasion, President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi extended his official invitation to PM Nguyen Xuan Phuc to visit Egypt in the near future.
