Ms. Anne S. Makinda, accompanied by a Tanzanian legislature delegation, arrived in Hà Nội yesterday for a week-long visit which ends on November 16.

The Vietnamese Deputy PM suggested the two countries set up a joint committee for economic cooperation to expand the current economic ties.

Tanzania now considers agriculture development as one of its top priorities and is looking for closer cooperation with and assistance from Việt Nam in this field, she stated.

For this matter, Deputy PM Phạm Gia Khiêm revealed that Việt Nam and some African countries have set up successful models for agriculture cooperation, including one with Mozambique, saying that Việt Nam is ready to assist Tanzania.

Ms. Anne S. Makinda also hoped Việt Nam would help Tanzania to address its shortage of teaching personnel.
