He paid a visit to the headquarters of Maz Asia JSC and planted friendship trees at the campus of Au Viet Food Import - Export and Manufacture JSC in Kim Dong District, Hung Yen Province.

PM Golovchenko said that his nation has much experience in waste treatment as well as in used tire and plastic recycling thus he expected stronger partnership with Hung Yen in these fields.

He hoped the provincial authorities would create favorable conditions for the projected expansion of Maz Asia's automobile manufacturing and assembly plant.

On the occasion of his visit to Vietnam, Golovchenko, Deputy Foreign Minister of Belarus Evgeny Shestako, and the Belarusian consul general in Vietnam organized a ceremony on Thursday to open the Belarusian Consulate General in Thu Duc City under Ho Chi Minh City.
