YANGON, March 16 (Xinhua) -- Myanmar Vice President U Nyan Tun will pay a goodwill visit to Vietnam soon, an official announcement said on Saturday without specifying the date of his visit.
It will be U Nyan Tun's first ever trip to the Southeast Asian member country at the invitation of his Vietnamese counterpart Madam Nguyen Thi Doan and the visit comes a year after President U Thein Sein visited Hanoi in March last year.
During U Thein Sein's March 2012 visit, Myanmar and Vietnam agreed to continue cooperation in such areas as agriculture, forestry and fisheries, livestock breeding, finance and banking, telecommunication, transport, oil and gas, construction materials and tourist.
The two top leaders also agreed to maintain the exchange of visits at different levels and hold regular meetings on cooperation, including those of the joint committee on bilateral cooperation, the joint committee on trade cooperation and the political consultancy talks between the two foreign ministries.
In November 2012, Vietnamese President Truong Tan Sang also visited Nay Pyi Taw in exchange for that to Hanoi by U Thein Sein.
According to official statistics, Vietnam's investment in Myanmar reached 346.147 million U.S.dollars in 4 projects as of December, 2012 since Myanmar opened to such investment in late 1988, of which 326.147 million dollars were so far injected in 2012 alone.
Vietnam stands the 19th in Myanmar's foreign investors' line-up.
Vietnam mainly imports from Myanmar its forestry products, marine products, vegetables and rubber while exporting to the country iron products, machines and spare parts, plastic, textile and clothing.
