Romania confident of stronger relations with Vietnam

Major media agencies in Romania have recently highlighted Vietnam’s rising position internationally in recent times and expressed their belief in the stronger development of bilateral relations under the new Vietnamese leadership.

Romanian News Agency Agerpres and other online newspapers such as Romaniatv.net, Republicatv.ro, Proarges.ro, Digi24.ro, Stirileprotv.ro reported on the results of the freshly concluded Vietnamese National Assembly session that elected a new leadership.

The agencies noted during the past five years under the leadership of the Communist Party of Vietnam, the government has made sound performance to help the nation surmount numerous difficulties and obtain internationally-recognised achievements.

Among the achievements, they said Vietnam have successfully brought under control three coronavirus outbreaks in a timely manner thanks to drastic measures put in place. It has also maintained major economic balances, with GDP growth hitting 2.9% last year despite global contraction.

According to the local media outlets, the traditional friendship and cooperative relations between Romania and Vietnam have developed strongly in various areas over the past 70 years of their diplomacy. Notably, Vietnam is one of Romania’s major economic partners in Asia and ASEAN, VOV reported.

The outlets expressed their belief the new leadership will continue to elevate Vietnam’s profile globally, while promoting fruitful cooperation with Romania in the coming years.

President lauds Da Nang, Quang Nam for achievements

President Nguyen Xuan Phuc lauded the central city of Da Nang and the neighbouring province of Quang Nam for their achievements over the past years during a working session with their leaders on April 10.

He stressed that due to the COVID-19 pandemic last year, Quang Nam and Da Nang’s economies suffered negative growth. But in the first quarter this year, they achieved outstanding growth.

Da Nang attracted a number of investors and is working on building a financial hub. Meanwhile, Quang Nam dealt with difficulties following disasters and flooding, and is focusing on tourism and services.

The President suggested the two localities seek pillar fields as Da Nang is a hub in the central region and Da Nang – Quang Nam is a growth locomotive in the region and an important driving force of the country.

He asked them to become worth-living localities and join hands to build a powerful country. Following the COVID-19 pandemic, they should strive to become safe tourism paradises.

Their leaders were urged to fix shortcomings, step up reform, rearrange a streamlined apparatus while ensuring effective vaccinations, NDO said.

NA Chairman pays working trip to central Nghe An province

National Assembly Chairman Vuong Dinh Hue attended a ceremony in central Nghe An province on April 11 where the Ministry of Health handed over a decision recognising the Nghe An General Friendship Hospital as an end-line hospital in medical checkup and treatment in the north central region.

As reported by NDO, handing over the decision to the hospital, Minister of Health Nguyen Thanh Long said that as a tertiary referral hospital providing health check-up and treatment services, the Nghe An General Friendship Hospital will play a stronger role in the development of the health sector of Nghe An province in particular and the whole north central region in general.

Long expressed his hope that the quality of services provided by the hospital will continue to be improved, dealing with the overload and better meeting the demand of residents in Nghe An as well as neighbouring provinces and Laos.

The minister asked the hospital to become a special-level hospital in the next five years.

The recognition of the Nghe An General Friendship Hospital as an end-line hospital aims to realise this goal, he added.

Vietnam calls for int’l efforts to stop violence in Myanmar
