NDO/VNA – Prime Minister Nguyen Xuan Phuc and President of the Council of State and Council of Ministers of Cuba Miguel Mario Diaz Canel Bermudez agreed to make it easier for businesses’ partnerships and investment in new fields like telecom, pharmaceuticals, banking, and biotechnology.

The agreement was made during the leaders’ meeting in Hanoi on November 9.

They also agreed to coordinate to successfully organise the 36th meeting of the intergovernmental committee later this year, and increase the exchange of visits at all levels and the sharing of experience in socio-economic development.
