NA Chairwoman visits Thailand’s Udon Thani province

Chairwoman of the National Assembly Nguyen Thi Kim Ngan on August 28 visited Udon Thani province, as part of her ongoing official visit to Thailand.

During her stay in Udon Thani which accommodates the largest number of Vietnamese-origin people in Thailand, the top legislator met with provincial Governor Watana Puttichat.

Ngan thanked the Governor and locals for their support to the community and for the preservation and restoration of the relic site on President Ho Chi Minh in Nong On village, Chiang Phin commune, Mueang district.

The leader said the 17 pairs of Vietnamese and Thai localities having set up twining relations have facilitated their businesses in seeking investment and cooperation opportunities, while helping promote people-to-people exchanges.

She rejoiced at efforts made by Udon Thani and Vietnam’s Thai Nguyen province to accelerate the establishment of a twining relationship.

For his part, Watana highlighted contributions of the association of the Vietnamese-origin people in Udon Thani to the local socio-economic development.

Udon Thani wishes to establish twinning relations with some Vietnamese localities and aims to open a direct air route between the province and Vietnam, he said.

The governor informed his host of the coming trade promotion conference in Udon Thani in September, with the participation of Vietnamese businesspeople.

The NA Chairwoman suggested Watana pay more visits to Vietnamese localities to promote cultural, economic and tourism exchanges between the two sides.

On this occasion, the top legislator visited the relic site on President Ho Chi Minh, where she met with representatives of the Vietnamese community in the Thai province.

She expressed her hope that the overseas Vietnamese will contribute to the strategic partnership between Vietnam and Thailand, and to the development of Thailand.

Later the same day, NA Chairwoman Ngan visited Vietnamese language teaching classes in Khanh An pagoda, with over 100 members who are children of overseas Vietnamese and Thais.
