NDO/VNA – Prime Minister Nguyen Xuan Phuc received Tao Hui, Director General of Texhong Vietnam, in Hanoi on March 6.

The government leader spoke highly of the textile group’s business and production in Vietnam, and added that in his meetings with Chinese leaders, the two sides mentioned Texhong as an example of Chinese firms operating in Vietnam which make important contributions to bilateral relations.

For his part, the Chinese official said the attention paid by the PM, ministries and localities of Vietnam to the company as well as the country’s fight against the COVID-19 epidemic is encouraging the group to move positively toward expanding its investment in Vietnam, with an addition of US$500 million this year.

He expressed his hope that the Government, ministries and localities of Vietnam, especially Quang Ninh province will quickly finish procedures related to the transport of goods and materials, and help a limited number of high-level managers and experts of Texho to work in Vietnam. The official also pledged to implement the provisions by Vietnamese authorities on the fight against the epidemic.

PM Phuc said the government will direct Quang Ninh province to consider the proposal and extended his regards to workers of the Chinese projects in Vietnam. He also extended sympathies from leaders of the Party, State and people of Vietnam to their Chinese counterparts over the losses caused by the epidemic.
