NA Chairman Hue also attended events to promote cooperation between localities and businesses of the two sides, which have contributed to further promoting the Vietnam – RoK strategic cooperative partnership, and the friendship and comprehensive strategic cooperation partnership between Vietnam and India.

The trip continued to affirm Vietnam's open foreign policy of diversification and multilateralisation, proactiveness, and activeness and responsibility of the Vietnamese Party and State, thus improving the country's position in the region and the world. 

It also continued promoting the strength of parliamentary diplomacy in bilateral relations with the two important strategic partners of Vietnam in Asia, strengthened political trust with senior leaders of the RoK and Indian parliaments, and experience sharing on parliamentary activities as well as measures for economic recovery and development amid the COVID-19 pandemic.

The trip has achieved comprehensive results in politics, foreign affairs, vaccine diplomacy, people-to-people diplomacy and overseas Vietnamese work. 

As many as nine cooperation agreements were inked between Vietnam’s ministries, sectors and agencies and those of the RoK and India, while 39 investment certificates and cooperation agreements worth 15 billion USD were handed over during the trip. 

One the highlights of the trip visit was the specific results of the "vaccine diplomacy" work and cooperation in fighting COVID-19. 

Through high-level meetings with businesses, NA Chairman Hue received COVID-19 vaccines, supplies and materials for producing COVID-19 treatment drugs, and financial support from RoK and Indian enterprises.

A ceremony to hand over vaccines, supplies and materials for producing COVID-19 treatment drugs to Vietnamese agencies and enterprises was organised immediately after the plan carrying the Vietnamese delegation landed at Noi Bai airport./.
