VGP – At the invitation of PM Nguyễn Tấn Dũng, Finnish PM Matti Vanhanen will pay an official visit to Việt Nam on November 15-17.

Finish PM Matti Vanhanen

The upcoming visit targets to strengthen the friendly and traditional ties between the Southeast Asian country and the Nordic state, and to accelerate the bilateral ties, especially in economics, trade and investment. 

The visit takes place when the relations between Việt Nam and Finland have seen positive progress. 

Finland is one of the first countries offering Việt Nam with ODA. So far, the Scandinavian country has provided the recipient country with around US $400 million for poverty reduction, clean water supply, environment, science and technology.  

During his tour to Việt Nam, Finnish PM Matti Vanhanen plans to hold talks with PM Nguyễn Tấn Dũng, meet with other Vietnamese leaders and attend the Việt Nam-Finland Business Forum in Hồ Chí Minh City.
