He proposed that the legislative bodies of Viet Nam and Myanmar actively coordinate in supervising the implementation of the agreements signed between the two countries, including an action program on the implementation of the Viet Nam-Myanmar comprehensive cooperative partnership for 2019-2024, while supporting mechanisms, policies and laws aiming to accelerate bilateral trade and investment cooperation.
