Permanent Vice Chairman of the National Assembly Tran Thanh Man has affirmed that Vietnam wants to strengthen and further develop its strategic partnership with Indonesia towards the 10th founding anniversary of the strategic partnership next year.

During a reception in Hanoi on December 14 for Chairman of the Committee for Inter-Parliamentary Cooperation under the Indonesian People’s Representative Council Fadli Zon, Man lauded the two legislatures for resuming the direct exchange of delegations after the COVID-19 pandemic, saying parliamentary cooperation will contribute to the bilateral strategic partnership.

He also expressed his belief that Indonesia will successfully assume its role as ASEAN Chair and Chair of the 44th General Assembly of the ASEAN Inter-Parliamentary Assembly (AIPA-44) in 2023, accomplish the Indonesia Vision 2045, and become a developed nation by 2045 when it celebrates 100 years of independence.

Man suggested the two sides continue working closely together to lift their strategic partnership to a new height in the near future, especially boosting parliamentary cooperation to be on a par with the strategic partnership.

Specifically, both sides should direct their ministries and agencies to carry out the 2019-2023 Action Plan for the strategic partnership and build the 2024-2028 Action Plan, and discuss measures to step up their strategic partnership for recovery and development following the pandemic.

The exchange of all-level visits should be facilitated while specific measures should be taken to boost balanced two-way trade, he said.

Speaking highly of the close ties between the two countries at multilateral organisations and forums, particularly the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) and the United Nations, Man affirmed that the Vietnamese NA will support and work with the Indonesian Parliament to successful hold AIPA-44.

Zon, for his part, agreed with the host’s proposal to foster the friendship and cooperation between the two countries in a more effective and practical manner.

He said Indonesian agencies and the Indonesian Embassy in Vietnam are preparing for visits to Indonesia by Vietnamese leaders, adding that the two legislatures need to further oversee and promote links in various areas.
