Politburo member and Secretary of the Ho Chi Minh City Party Committee Nguyen Thien Nhan (R) presents a keepsake to US Senator Patrick Leahy, Vice Chair of the Senate Committee on Appropriations.

The official said, on his position, he has worked to boost bilateral cooperative ties in the fields of education, science, and technology.

Nhan expressed his appreciation for the efforts of the US in general and Leahy in particular, in the settlement of war aftermath in Vietnam, including Agent Orange/dioxin-related issues.

Regarding the matter of energy, Nhan informed his guests that Vietnam has yet to widely use renewable energy like wind or solar power in the daily life partly due to their high costs.

He said the country is hoping that there will soon be solutions to boosting the use of renewable energy in the daily life and production.

For his part, Leahy said the current trip helps his delegation understand more about Vietnam, and as such, know what should be done to propel the bilateral collaboration forward.

He noted that to solve the issue of energy and other matters, the most important thing is the way of cooperation between the two sides.
