Prime Minister Nguyen Xuan Phuc expressed his pleasure at mutual cooperation between the Boeing Company and Vietnamese airlines.  

Prior to fruitful bilateral development and economic growth especially the growth of Vietnam’s tourism industry, aviation development is not only necessary for travelling demand but also for high prospect of bilateral cooperation in the fields of plane purchase and assembly manufacture in Vietnam. As this reason, Vietnam desires the Boeing Company to strengthen cooperation with Vietnamese airlines as well as support them in air plane maintenance and aviation safety. 

Additionally, Vietnam needs to increase number of pilots to meet demand of aviation development, said the Prime Minister. 

On the same day, Prime Minister Nguyen Xuan Phuc had a meeting with Mr. Mark Tucker, Chairman of the United Kingdom’s HSBC Holdings Plc. 

Foreign investment attraction and aviation industry have strongly developed in Vietnam so the Prime Minister hoped that HSBC would expand as well as expand more new business in the country, and promote investment from the United Kingdom and other countries in Vietnam.
