The visit is being made at the invitation of Chairwoman of the National Assembly Nguyen Thi Kim Ngan.
The Speaker is accompanied by members of the National Assembly Jun Hye-sook, Suh Jung-sook, Bae Jin-gyo and Park Sang-hyuk, and Korean Ambassador to Vietnam Park Noh-wan.
The Vietnam-RoK relations have developed comprehensively and pragmatically on the basis of political trust between the two countries’ high-ranking leaders, similarities in history and culture, mutual economic assistance, and people-to-people exchange.
After their relationship was upgraded to a strategic cooperative partnership in 2009, the two countries have become each other’s important partner, with strongly developing cooperation in economy-trade-investment and labour, and development cooperation.
Collaboration in culture and education, and people-to-people exchange has expanded in both quantity and quality, serving as an important foundation for the two countries’ people to enhance their mutual understanding.
Particularly, the Vietnam-RoK and RoK-Vietnam friendship parliamentarians’ groups have served as a bridge to connect the legislatures and peoples of the two nations.
