NDO/VNA – National Assembly Chairwoman Nguyen Thi Kim Ngan and her entourage arrived in the capital city of Brussels, Belgium on April 3, beginning their working trip to the European Parliament (EP) at the invitation of President Antonio Tajani.

She was welcomed at the airport by Vietnamese Ambassador to Belgium Vu Anh Quang, Chairman of the Belgium – Vietnam Friendship Parliamentarians’ Group Georges Dallemagne, other Belgian officials and representatives of Vietnamese nationals living in the country.

Vietnam and the European Union (EU) officially established their diplomatic ties on November 28, 1990. Later in 1996, the EU set up its representative mission in Hanoi.

The visit aims to discuss ties between the Vietnamese legislature and parliaments of EU member states, and the EP, intensify relations between ASEAN and the EU, as well as debate bilateral, regional and global issues of shared concern.
