The top Vietnamese legislator congratulated Thailand on successfully controlling the Covid-19 pandemic, and implementing economic and tourism development initiatives.

He expressed his joy at the increasingly growing friendship and cooperation between Vietnam and Thailand, especially in economy, trade, and investment. Thailand is now the largest trade partner and the second biggest investor of Vietnam in ASEAN.

Hue said he had successful online talks with the Speaker of the House of Representatives of Thailand Chuan Leekpai in August 2021, thereby shaping the framework for the two countries legislatures to continue strengthening cooperation in the future.

Singpai said Thailand's media has reported about Vietnam's achievements, including those in the corruption fight. He also expressed his impression at Vietnam’s GDP and export growth as well as the country’s success in attracting foreign direct investment (FDI).

He hoped that both Vietnam and Thailand will achieve their development goals in the future and the bilateral relations will develop more and more sustainably.

The Thai guest suggested the two countries’ friendship parliamentary groups continue to increase visits, meetings and experience sharing activities in the time to come.

On behalf of the Thai Senate, Singpai invited NA Chairman Hue to attend the 30th Asia-Pacific Parliamentary Forum (APPF-30) in Thailand next month.

Members of the delegation of the Senate Standing Committee on the Independent Organs under the Constitution of Thailand highly valued the effectiveness of Vietnam's corruption combat. Specifically, in 2021, Vietnam's Corruption Perceptions Index (PCI) according to Transparency International's assessment has increased by 3 points (from 36 points in 2020 to 39 points) and from 104th rank has rised to 87th out of 180 countries in the world. Therefore, the delegation is looking forward to learning about the country's policies and sharing experience in this field with relevant Vietnamese agencies.

NA Chairman Hue thanked the Thai officials for the invitation to attend APPF-30, affirming Vietnam will fully support Thailand in successfully organizing this event.

Regarding the prevention and fight against corruption and negative phenomena, the top Vietnamese legislator asserted that the Party and the State of Vietnam regard this as a key task.

The Vietnamese NA issued the Anti-corruption Law to create a legal framework for this work, he said, noting that all decisions made by the legislature focus on preventing and combating corruption and negative phenomena, along with promoting thrift practice and wastefulness prevention.

The Vietnamese NA is also working hard to improve the quality of law-making, supervision, and deciding on critical national issues in order to contribute effectively to the fight against corruption and thrift practice promotion, he said.

In related news, a reception to celebrate the 77th anniversary of the National Day was held by the Vietnamese Embassy in Thailand on September 26, bringing together 400 delegates from the Thai government, ASEAN member nations’ embassies, and the EU Delegation to Thailand, among others.

Next year, the two countries will celebrate the 10th anniversary of their strategic partnership. The Vietnamese ambassador said this is a good chance for the two sides to lift the bilateral relations to a new height.

The diplomat took the occasion to thank Thailand and the international community for always supporting Vietnam's development.

He praised the business community of both countries for their efforts to promote Vietnam – Thailand economic cooperation while applauding endeavors by the Vietnamese community in Thailand in stepping up the bilateral ties and contributing to the homeland.

Thai and international friends highly valued and expressed their optimism about Vietnam’s achievements, believing that the Vietnam-Thailand strategic partnership will continue to develop fruitfully, contributing to bringing prosperity to the people of the two nations.
