On the afternoon of November 8, Nguyen Van Nen, member of the Politburo and Secretary of the Ho Chi Minh City Party Committee, welcomed Frances Adamson, Governor of South Australia, Australia, for a courtesy visit.

At the beginning of the meeting, Secretary Nen expressed his gratitude to Australia for their support to Vietnam, including Ho Chi Minh City, in providing medical equipment and tens of millions of doses of Covid-19 vaccines during the recent outbreak. After one year, the economy has recovered, thus the two sides have strengthened their strategic cooperation in many areas.

Frances Adamson stated that this was her fourth visit to Vietnam, but her first as the Governor of South Australia in her first visit to Ho Chi Minh City.

Through meetings and working sessions, Ms. Adamson recognized that Vietnam’s economy is strong with a young workforce, and she is delighted that the two countries decided to become strategic partners since 2018. The Governor of South Australia also believes that Ho Chi Minh City is a very dynamic city with high growth rates and a focus on scientific initiatives.

Nguyen Van Nen and Frances Adamson both expressed their desire to further strengthen their cooperation, especially in the fields of education and renewable energy.

Regarding education, Ms. Adamson said that there are many Vietnamese students currently studying in South Australia, and many Australian students come to study in Ho Chi Minh City. In addition to student exchanges, Australia is also willing to bring its universities to Ho Chi Minh City.

In the delegation of both sides, besides the leaders of Ho Chi Minh City and South Australia, there are also leaders from various sectors such as foreign affairs, industry and trade, health, and education, with the desire to enhance dialogue and multi-sectoral cooperation from both Vietnam and Australia.

Both sides also discussed extensively on cooperation in the field of renewable energy to combat climate change. Australia stated that they are striving to develop new technology products in this field and will be ready to bring them to the market by 2025. Vietnam has also set a determined goal and commitment to reduce emissions by 2025.

The two leaders hope to achieve these goals together in a spirit of cooperation based on the directions and priorities set by the two governments, contributing to the development of both economies and providing positive solutions to combat climate change, including the transition to clean energy as outlined in the roadmap.
