Vietnamese Deputy Prime Minister Vuong Dinh Hue is on a visit to Belgium to tighten the two counties’ relationship and seek further investment from Belgian businesses.

At the invitation of the Belgian government and leaders of the European Union, the Vietnamese deputy premier has led a delegation of high-ranking officials on a business trip to the European nation scheduled for September 15 to 19, according to the Vietnam News Agency.

Within the framework of his trip, Hue visited several economic units in the northern cities of Antwerp and Ostend on Sunday.

Speaking during a meeting at the headquarters of Rent-A-Port, an engineering and investment company in Antwerp, the leader stressed that Vietnam always creates favorable conditions for Rent-A-Port, and foreign businesses in general, to operate in the country.

The Belgian firm has been cooperating with the administration in the northern Vietnamese city of Hai Phong in developing the Dinh Vu Industrial Park, which has been considered one of the most successful projects in the northern region.
