During her stay in Udon Thani which accommodates the largest number of Vietnamese-origin people in Thailand, the top legislator met with provincial Governor Watana Puttichat.
Ngan thanked the Governor and locals for their support to the community and for the preservation and restoration of the relic site on President Ho Chi Minh in Nong On village, Chiang Phin commune, Mueang district.
The leader said the 17 pairs of Vietnamese and Thai localities having set up twining relations have facilitated their businesses in seeking investment and cooperation opportunities, while helping promote people-to-people exchanges.
She rejoiced at efforts made by Udon Thani and Vietnam’s Thai Nguyen province to accelerate the establishment of a twining relationship.
For his part, Watana highlighted contributions of the association of the Vietnamese-origin people in Udon Thani to the local socio-economic development.
Udon Thani wishes to establish twinning relations with some Vietnamese localities and aims to open a direct air route between the province and Vietnam, he said.
The governor informed his host of the coming trade promotion conference in Udon Thani in September, with the participation of Vietnamese businesspeople.
The NA Chairwoman suggested Watana pay more visits to Vietnamese localities to promote cultural, economic and tourism exchanges between the two sides.
