President of the Thai National Assembly Wan Muhamad Noor Matha said he highly appreciates the valuable contributions of over 100,000 Vietnamese people living in Thailand to the host nation’s socio-economic development, while receiving Vietnamese Ambassador to Thailand Phan Chi Thanh in Bangkok on October 19, VNA reported.

The top legislator of Thailand also hailed the countries’ cooperation in recent times, including exchanges across parliamentary, governmental, business, and people-to-people channels. The bilateral ties in investment and trade have also been continuously fostering through road and air connections.
He went on expressing his gratitude to the Vietnamese Government for its support and facilitation of Thai businesses' investment and business activities in Vietnam.
For his part, Thanh stated that the two countries' law-making bodies have been cooperating well at various multilateral parliamentary forums such as the ASEAN Inter-Parliamentary Assembly (AIPA), Asia-Pacific Parliamentary Forum (APPF), and Inter-Parliamentary Union (IPU).
He wished that the two parliaments will continue to work more closely together, especially in terms of high-level and multilevel delegation exchanges, coordinating bilateral and multilateral activities, and sharing legislative experiences.

The ambassador also emphasized that economic cooperation is an important pillar in the relationship between the two countries, in which Thailand continues to be a major investor and trade partner in Vietnam.
He reiterated the Vietnamese NA Chairman’s invitation, hoping to host the Thai NA President and other parliamentarian leaders in Vietnam at a suitable time in the near future.
Last month, a conference to promote trade exchanges between businesses in the north-central region of Vietnam and those in Khon Kaen and Ubon Ratchathani provinces in the northeastern region of Thailand was held in Thailand.
As part of the national programme on trade promotion, the event was jointly organized by the Vietnamese Consulate General in Khon Kaen, the Investment, Trade and Tourism Promotion Centre of the central province of Quang Tri, and the authorities of Khon Kaen and Ubon Ratchathani provinces.
During their trip, Vietnamese businesses signed 14 MoUs on cooperation with Thai firms. They also had working sessions with Vietnamese associations, joined business matching activities and trade fairs, and visit a number of supermarkets and large distributors in Khon Kaen and Ubon Ratchathani.
