Hanoi has basically repelled the Covid-19 pandemic, he said, attributing the result to the joining of hands between the Government and the people, including the RoK community in the city.
The Politburo member expressed his wish for the ambassadors coordination in restoring the supply chain for Vietnamese businesses as well as RoK firms operating in Vietnam, emphasising that Vietnam as a whole, and Hanoi in particular, will gradually reopen the door to foreigners, especially for countries who have already controlled the disease, including the RoK.
Hanoi is also promoting the disbursement of public investment projects, thus paving the way for other economic activities, he stated.

Hue voiced his desire to attract more RoK investors to the city via the ambassador, extending an invitation to the diplomat and RoK companies to attend the investment promotion conference to be held by the city later next month.
For his part, Park Noh-wan expressed gratitude to the Secretary of the Hanoi Party Committee for his directions and care, thus ensuring the safety of the RoK community as well as maintaining the operations of RoK businesses in Hanoi.
Thanking Hanoi for facilitating the construction of a new building for the Korean International School in the city, the ambassador shared his hope that Hanoi would continue creating favourable conditions for the school to open its second campus in the context of the rapidly growing number of RoK students at this institution.
