French Prime Minister Édouard Philippe attended the opening ceremony of the French Medical Center in Ho Chi Minh City on Sunday morning, as part of his three-day visit to Vietnam that started on Friday.

The facility boasts international-standard medical examination services and develops cooperation with French health care experts and companies.

Accompanying the prime minister were French Minister of Solidarities and Health Agnès Buzyn and Minister of Public Action and Accounts Gerald Moussa Darmanin.

The attendees at the event also included French parliament members and corporate leaders who recognize Vietnam’s enormous growth potential.

Later on the same day Prime Minister Philippe will meet with Secretary of the Ho Chi Minh City Party Committee Nguyen Thien Nhan and be present at a France-Vietnam business forum in the southern metropolis.

In 1973 Vietnam and France established diplomatic relations, which evolved into strategic partnership five years ago.

Hanoi and Paris have strengthened their bilateral ties through visits of high-level delegations in recent years.

Their multifaceted cooperation was latterly forged following a visit to France by General Secretary of the Communist Party of Vietnam Nguyen Phu Trong in March 2018.
