Chairwoman Ngan made the point while receiving Chairman of the European Parliament’s Committee on International Trade (INTA) Lange Bernd on October 30 in Ha Noi. 

The host congratulated Lange on his re-appointment as head of the INTA, speaking highly of his active contributions to the friendship and cooperation between the Vietnamese NA and the European Parliament.

The top leader said Viet Nam treasures and wishes to strengthen the comprehensive cooperation  with the EU, especially in economy and trade. The country will fully and seriously carry out the commitments in the two agreements, including those relevant to sustainable development. 

The host leader stressed that Viet Nam always considers the EU one of its leading partners, particularly in terms of economy, trade and investment.  The signing and ratification of many legal documents and the frequent mutual visits by the two sides’ leaders in the first half of this year showed the prioritization of bilateral ties in each side’s foreign policy, creating an increasingly solid foundation and opens up new prospects for Viet Nam-EU relations.

Regarding illegal fishing, Chairwoman Ngan  said that Viet Nam pursues responsible and sustainable aquatic exploitation in accordance with international law including the prevention of illegal, unreported, and unregulated (IUU) fishing.

Viet Nam has spared no effort to resolve IUU problem and enforce relevant international accords, asserted the host leader.

In reply, Mr. Lange said during the INTA delegation’s working trip to Viet Nam, they had a meeting with the Ministry of Industry and Trade and learnt that this ministry is working with relevant agencies to build a plan for implementing the EVFTA and EVIPA to  ensure the full and effective implementation of the deals after they are ratified./.
