Q: So what is your impression in the first time you are in this resort city?


A: Many beautiful scenaries and green trees. The people are friendly and the smiles are what you often see on streets. (smiles)


Q: And what do you think about the agreement signed between Parramatta and Vung Tau in 1993? 


A: Personally I think this is an important agreement, which started the good relationship between the two cities as well as the two nations in the last 12 years. I am thinking about the corporation between the two cities during the trip, for example in education field.


I am also considering about the proposals of scholarship for Vung Tau learners to Parramatta to study or students from Parramatta to Vung Tau for better understand the city. We will create the best conditions for our enterprises to find opportunities in Vung Tau.

Q: To be here at this special time is special for you?


A: Definitely yes. It is the 30 year anniversary of your city liberation and Southern liberation day, as well as Vietnam unification day. I came to pay respect for the soldiers who sacrified their lives for the victory of Vietnam and attended the grand meeting to celebrate the day.


It is my big honor to do such thing as an Australian national. I would like to send a peaceful messange to Vung Tau people on behalf of the people at Parramatta.


Q: Thank you.
