Chairman of the Senate of the Parliament Maulen Ashimbaev met with a delegation of deputies of the National Assembly of Vietnam. During the meeting, parliamentarians discussed issues of bilateral cooperation and further development of interparliamentary relations.
Welcoming foreign colleagues, Maulen Ashimbaev emphasized that a constructive and trusting dialogue at the highest level had developed between Kazakhstan and Vietnam. In this regard, it is important to maintain the high pace of interaction set by the Heads of the two states.
“The official visit of the country’s President Kassym-Jomart Kemelevich Tokayev to Vietnam gave new impetus to the development of bilateral cooperation. A number of important documents were signed in various areas of cooperation. An important part of bilateral relations is interparliamentary cooperation. Today's meeting is taking place within the framework of the agreements reached during the visit. A further practical step in the exchange of legislative experience could be the establishment of working contacts between relevant Committees, as well as between deputies from the Kazakhstan-Vietnam friendship groups,” Maulen Ashimbaev said.
One of the proposals voiced by the Speaker of the Senate within the framework of interregional development is strengthening cooperation between the regions of Kazakhstan and the provinces of Vietnam.
In addition, during the meeting the parties outlined the potential for trade, economic and investment cooperation. In this regard, the Speaker of the Senate focused the attention of his colleagues on the economic reforms that were initiated by the Head of State in the Address to the People of Kazakhstan. As part of the planned reforms, as Maulen Ashimbaev noted, new opportunities are opening up for foreign investors in various fields.
In turn, Deputy Chairman of the National Assembly of Vietnam Nguyen Hac Dinh highly appreciated the socio-economic and political reforms being carried out in Kazakhstan, expressing interest in expanding multilateral cooperation.
