Yen Bai - Val de Marne: A Benevolent Example of Vietnam-France Cooperation
|Since 1996, France’s Val de Marne province has assisted Vietnam’s northern mountainous province of Yen Bai province through projects in many fields.
A delegation from Yen Bai led by the Secretary of the provincial Party Committee Do Duc Duy visited France from October 12-15 to strengthen cooperation between the province and French localities, especially Val de Marne.
While in France, the Yen Bai delegation had a working session with representatives from Val De Marne on October 12, during which they reviewed cooperation in climate change response, water supply and wastewater treatment, and health care for mothers and children.
On this occasion, the two localities inked a framework agreement on cooperation in the 2023-2028 period, an agreement on health care for mothers and children in Yen Bai province, and a project on waste mud treatment in Yen Bai city.
Secretary of the Yen Bai Province Party Committee Do Duc Duy noted that leaders and people of the two provinces always respect and nurture the bilateral friendship, thus contributing to deepening comprehensive cooperation between Vietnam and France.
On October 13, the Vietnamese delegation met with Karim Bouamrane, Mayor of Saint Ouen sur Seine, and other leaders of the city, during which they discussed potential cooperation areas like urban transport infrastructure, health care, education, and sports.
During the visit to France, the Yen Bai delegation also visited the Vietnamese Embassy in France.
Ambassador to France Dinh Toan Thang appreciated the participation of Yen Bai and Val de Marne in the 12th Vietnam-France decentralized cooperation conference in Hanoi in April.
He called the traditional and fruitful cooperation between the two localities a model of decentralized cooperation between Vietnam and France.
Since Yen Bai and Val de Marne formed friendship and cooperative ties in 1996, bilateral relations have been increasingly reinforced and reaped fruitful results. Val-de-Marne has effectively assisted Yen Bai in such fields as health care, culture, heritage value promotion, water supply and wastewater treatment, agriculture and rural development, and economic development worth over VND111 billion (USD 4.5 million).
Val de Marne welcomed more than 200 officials from Yen Bai province to study, improve qualifications and skills in areas, and share experience.
