HA NOI - A delegation from Belarus's House of Representatives led by its chairman Andreichenko Vladimir Pavlovich begins an official visit to Viet Nam today.
The four-day visit is made at the invitation of National Assembly Chairman Nguyen Phu Trong.
Viet Nam and the Republic of Belarus established diplomatic relations in 1992. The two countries have signed many agreements to create favourable conditions for bilateral co-operation.
Economic and trade relations between the two countries remain modest with respect to the two countries' potential.
During the first four months of this year, bilateral trade turnover was US$22.3 million, representing an increase of 1.5 times against the same period last year.
The figures were $120 million and $124.6 million in 2009 and 2008, respectively. - VNS
