At the meeting between the visiting Vietnamese National Assembly (NA) delegation and the Vietnamese Embassy staff and Vietnamese nationals in the country, the Chairwoman listened to Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary Tran Quoc Thuy’s briefing on the operation of the embassy and lives of Vietnamese nationals in the country.

The NA Chairwoman also briefed the participants on major outcomes of the recent 6th NA sitting and preparation for the upcoming 7th sitting. She emphasized that the NA at the 6th sitting successfully elected Party General Secretary Nguyen Phu Trong as State President, and ratified the Comprehensive and Progressive Agreement for Trans-Pacific Partnership (CPTPP) and other related documents.

She also highly appreciated the good performance of the embassy staff and affirmed that the Party and State always attach much importance to promote bilateral relations with other countries, including the Kingdom of Morocco, and create favorable conditions for Vietnamese representative agencies to promote bilateral relations with the host country, contributing to national construction and defense.

The NA Chairwoman thanked constructive opinions of Vietnamese nationals in the country, and praised them for their efforts to teach Vietnamese to their children and preserve and promote the Vietnamese cultural identity in Morocco.

She reaffirmed that the Party and State of Vietnam always pay due attention to overseas Vietnamese, and that all overseas Vietnamese, no matter where they live in the world, are an inseparable part of the nation and country of Vietnam. She hoped the Vietnamese nationals in Morocco always trust the Party and its leadership as well as seriously observe the host country’s laws.

“The two-way trade and economic cooperation between Vietnam and Morocco are still modest in comparison with the cooperation potential and demand of both countries. So I hope the Embassy and the Vietnamese community in Morocco would contribute positively to promoting bilateral ties and trade and economic cooperation between the two sides,” emphasized the NA Chairwoman.
