He suggested that the two sides strengthen their coordination at multilateral parliamentary forums such as the Inter-Parliamentary Union (IPU) and the Asia-Pacific Parliamentary Forum (APPF). He also recommended that the two countries enhance their cooperation in all fields for the sake of their people. Vice Chairman Uong Chu Luu welcomed the guest in order to attend the ongoing APPF-26 in Hanoi, saying that his participation will make significant contributions to the success of the event. He hoped Vietnam and Micronesia would soon sign cooperation agreements or Memoranda of Understanding in the fields of their strengths. The bilateral cooperation in economics, trade, investment, culture and tourism is expected to develop in line with their sound political ties, he said. He took this occasion to thank Micronesia for providing Vietnam with US$25,000 to address the consequences caused by typhoon Haiyan in 2013.
