During a meeting with Dutch Prime Minister Mark Rutte in Hanoi on April 9, Ngan congratulated the two PMs on their successful talks.

Informing the host about the outcomes of his talks with PM Nguyen Xuan Phuc, Rutte said both countries have delta regions and export farm produce, so they could learn from each other’s experience.

Vietnam and the Netherlands formed a strategic partnership on climate change adaptation and water management, while Vietnam’s exports to the European country rose seven-fold in only five years.

Discussing issues regarding the European Union-Vietnam Free Trade Agreement (EVFTA), NA Chairwoman Ngan said the Vietnamese legislature is in the process of refining legal regulations in line with international commitments and the FTAs Vietnam has signed and joined.

Rutte said the Netherlands supports the early signing and ratification of the EVFTA, which is beneficial to not only Vietnam but all parties concerned, especially the Netherlands.

As the Netherlands is the largest EU investor and the second largest EU trade partner of Vietnam, the country is seeking measures to push forward the EVFTA signing and ratification, he said.
