The MoU was signed at the meeting between Chairman of the Hanoi People’s Committee Nguyen Duc Chung and a visiting delegation from the Finnish region led by Chairman of its Regional Council Kai Pontinen.

Chung told the delegation that Hanoi and South Ostrobothnia, which celebrated their 10-year friendship in 2018, have together produced significant cooperation outcomes in trade, education, vocational training and cultural exchange. He underscored the sides’ regular exchange of high-ranking delegations, experts, and art troupes to foster bilateral ties.

Affirming that the freshly signed MoU will help enhance their collaboration, the Hanoi leader requested the sides expand their joint work regarding social welfare, investment promotion, tourism, smart city building, and environmental pollution treatment. These are strong sectors of South Ostrobothnia.

Chung wished that the South Ostrobothnia authorities will continue helping guest workers from Hanoi access social welfare and education so that they could enhance their working skills and make contributions to cooperation between the two localities.

For his part, Pontinen agreed that Hanoi and South Ostrobothnia, after a decade of cooperation, have achieved upbeat outcomes across fields and that the MoU will fortify the friendship between the two localities as well as the two countries.

He recommended the sides promote partnership in labor training, education-training, culture, sports and tourism in line with signed agreements, contributing to socio-economic growth in the two localities and countries.
