The trip is part of a programme themed “Vietnam-US comprehensive partnership for peace and prosperity” and aims at boosting ties between the two nations and their parliaments in various areas, including trade collaboration, alleviation of war consequences, the East Sea issue, response to climate change and cybersecurity.

At the meeting, VUFO President Nguyen Phuong Nga said the visit will help delegates obtain knowledge on Vietnam’s socio-economic and political affairs.

People-to-people exchange has been an important factor in Vietnam – US relations, she added.

Nga said she hopes Vietnamese and US youths will contribute to bilateral ties and that more US citizens will come to Vietnam to work and invest.

For their part, the US delegates expressed interest in exchange and cooperation programmes to deal with war aftermath in Vietnam as well as in the performance of US-based nongovernmental organisations in the Southeast Asian nation.

They said these activities would boost mutual understanding and collaboration between the two peoples in all spheres.

During their trip, the delegation is scheduled to visit a care centre for disabled kids in Da Nang city and a dioxin detoxification site at Da Nang Airport; attend the launching ceremony of a dioxin detoxification project at the Bien Hoa Airport; visit a climate-change-impacted site in Vinh Long province; and tour Ha Long Bay, among other activities.
