He appreciated the cooperation between the Vietnamese National Assembly (NA) and the Australian Parliament, saying he hopes that the relations between the two legislative bodies as well as the two friendship parliamentarians’ groups will continue to be strengthened, particularly through promoting the exchange of young parliamentarians and female ones.

The Prime Minister suggested that the two Parliaments continue to concretize the signed agreements, support and monitor the implementation of commitments between the two governments, and realize a practical and effective Vietnam-Australia Comprehensive Strategic Partnership. Prime Minister Chinh suggested that Australia, a multi-ethnic and multicultural country, consider and recognize the Vietnamese community as Australia's ethnic minority.

She added that the Australian House of Representatives looks forward to implementing the contents of this new cooperation framework, including promoting cooperation between the two friendship parliamentary groups in particular and the two legislative bodies in general.
