Vietnamese Prime Minister Nguyen Tan Dung said in Hanoi Thhursday that Vietnam agreed to promote infrastructure development to enhance transportation and trade links with China.

The infrastructure linking Hanoi, capital of Vietnam, and Nanning, capital city of China's southwestern Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region, could be upgraded, said Dung when meeting with an official from Guangxi.

Ma Biao, Chairman of China's Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region led a 1,000-member delegation to Vietnam on Thursday. The delegation will participate in a series of economic and culture activities during its six-day visit.

At the meeting, Dung told the Guangxi official that Vietnam is committed to promoting the development of cross-border economic zone with China.

Dung said Vietnam also expects to enhance cooperation with China in education, health and tourism. Vietnam welcomes Guangxi businessmen to set up education and health facilities in Vietnam.

Ma said at the meeting that Vietnam has been Guangxi's largest trade partner for eleven years. Guangxi would like to expand cooperation with Vietnam in economic and trade, tourism, education and many other sectors.

Ma suggests upgrading and connecting the railway and expressway linking Hanoi and Nanning, and establishing an economic corridor linking the two major cities.

The economic corridor could boost the development of provinces and cities along it, said Ma.

Ma also said Guangxi expects to send more students to study in Vietnam and receive more Vietnamese students in Guangxi schools and universities.
