Hanoi hopes to cooperate with France in developing urban transport and infrastructure, Chair of the Hanoi People’s Committee Nguyen Duc Chung said while hosting Stephanie Do, a French National Assembly deputy cum head of the France Vietnam Friendship Parliamentarians’ Group in Hanoi on July 15.

For decentralised relations among localities, in recent years, Hanoi has continuously promoted cooperation expansion with French cities and striven to become a model of cooperation between the two countries’ localities, Chung added.

Regarding the Nhon-Hanoi Railway Station urban railway line, the mayor said that Hanoi and the French embassy discussed accelerating the project. The city is determined to put the first phase of the project into operation in 2020.

In the time ahead, Hanoi hopes to expand collaboration with France’s localities in the field of infrastructure development for cultural and social purposes.
