PM Dung called on the
business delegation, led by the Governor, to explore investment opportunities in
Viet Nam, especially within the central province of Ninh Thuan.

He expressed his
pleasure at the development of the equally beneficial Viet Nam-US friendship and
co-operation across various fields.

Viet Nam committed
itself to working alongside the US in deepening their bilateral relations for
the purposes of peace and development in the region as well as in the world at
large, Dung said.

He hoped that the two
countries would be able to increase two-way trade, which currently stood at only
US$15 billion.

Dung thanked the US
Government and Maryland leaders for their assistance to the Vietnamese community
in the US.

For his part, Martin
O’Malley affirmed that his state would make all efforts to foster co-operation
between the two countries with particular regard to trade, investment, science
and technology, education and training.

O’Malley thanked the
Vietnamese Government for its co-operation with and support for the US in
searching for missing in action servicemen.

During his visit to
Vietnam, the Maryland Governor worked with Deputy Minister of Planning and
Investment, Bui Quang Vinh, witnessing the signing of five co-operative business
agreements based on health and environmental development.

O’Malley signed an
additional memorandum on co-operation between Maryland State and Vietnam’s
central province of Ninh Thuan in increasing mutual understanding, promoting
trade and business ties.
