The Shanghai delegation is in the Vietnamese Southern metropolis for the Ho Chi Minh City Economic Forum from September 13-17.

Vice Chairman of the Ho Chi Minh City People’s Committee Ngo Minh Chau stressed that its presence at the forum demonstrates the importance Shanghai attaches to the relations between the two localities.

The official used the occasion to thank Shanghai and other Chinese localities for their timely and valuable support to Ho Chi Minh City in the COVID-19 fight.

The Vietnamese Party, Government, and people in general and Ho Chi Minh City in particular always treasure the traditional friendship and multi-faceted cooperation with their Chinese counterparts, he affirmed, adding Ho Chi Minh City wishes for stronger cooperation and further experience exchange with Shanghai in such areas as financial center and smart city building, innovation, trade and logistics.

The Shanghai side also noted a hope for enhanced collaboration with Ho Chi Minh City in such fields as investment, trade, green economy and people-to-people exchange.

Under the MoU, the two agencies will step up delegation exchange and coordinate to accelerate the implementation of joint projects between departments and agencies of Ho Chi Minh City and Shanghai.
