Hanoi expects India to become a new source of materials for its textile and garment industry and Vietnam at large following the COVID-19 outbreak which has been causing a shortage of supplies.

Hanoi attaches importance to relations with India, Hue said, suggesting the two sides should strengthen their partnership.

He said the city has been accelerating innovation to improve productivity and support startups, and wants to learn from Indian experience in this area. He also expected India to import textiles and garment from Hanoi.

Verma, for his part, spoke highly of Vietnam’s efforts to contain the epidemic, saying the Hanoi administration has created a safe environment for foreigners living in the city.

He agreed that the two sides should reinforce ties, and unveiled that India has also been taking steps to bolster cooperation with Vietnam in economics, trade and investment.

He hoped to see more investors from Hanoi and Vietnam opening businesses in India in the future.

The diplomat went on to mention the International Day of Yoga, to be held in Hanoi in June, noting India has been closely monitoring the developments of the COVID-19 outbreak while preparing for the event.
