At the reception, Senate President Scott Ryan informed his host of the good results of his talks with Chairwoman of the Viet Nam National Assembly Nguyen Thi Kim Ngan, affirming that the Senate of Australia will continue promoting its role in enhancing cooperation with the Viet Nam NA and supporting the strategic partnership between the two countries.

Australia will work closely with Viet Nam in maintaining peace, stability, and cooperation in the region as well as in implementing efficiently agreements they joined, like the Comprehensive and Progressive Agreement for Trans-Pacific Partnership (CPTPP), he said.

He expressed his hope to further comprehensive cooperation across the Party, Government, and National Assembly channels and people-to-people relations, especially the exchange of high-level visits, and visits between mass organizations, in the future.

In turn, Party General Secretary and President Nguyen Phu Trong said he hopes two countries will continue their sound Party ties and create firm political connectivity as a basis to step up their strategic partnership.

He described the visit by Senate President Scott Ryan as significant in the context that the bilateral relations have entered a new phase of deeper and more comprehensive development following the establishment of the strategic partnership.

The Party, State leader asserted that Viet Nam will coordinate closely with Australia in implementing CPTPP, seeing it as an important mechanism for the two countries to step up their partnership in economics and trade.

Mr. Trong hailed the outcomes of the talks between the Senate President and the NA Chairwoman and suggested the two countries’ law-making bodies continue working together in supervising the implementation of inked agreements and action plans with a view to speeding up cooperation across the board and within ASEAN and regional and global forums.
