all-level visits by friendship parliamentarians’ groups and parliamentarians.

NA Chairwoman Ngan wished that India would continue
providing preferential credit packages and non-refundable aid for quick-impact
projects and the second stage of the software park in Da Nang, contributing to
Vietnam’s socio-economic development.

Speaking highly of the close liaison at regional and global
forums and India’s stance on the East Sea issue, the top lawmaker wished that
the Indian government would continue supporting Vietnam and ASEAN’s stance on
the issue.

Verma, for his part, said Vietnam and India share common
values about regional and global issues.

He lauded Vietnam as the most important partner in India’s Act
East policy and Indo-Pacific Vision, and hoped that visits by the two
countries’ leaders will continue creating a new driving force for bilateral
ties.

The guest vowed to do his best to realise signed agreements
and fulfill his assigned tasks in Vietnam./.
