Vietnamese Prime Minister Nguyen Tan Dung told Rangoon Region Chief Minister Myint Swe this week that Vietnam and Burma should increase investment, trade and tourism ties.

Myint Swe was in Vietnam to implement 12 agreements signed by both countries during Burmese President Thein Sein’s recent visit to Vietnam.

Dung said Vietnam will hold an investment conference in Rangoon next month, particularly to promote business in tourism, mining, agriculture and energy.

In 2011, the bilateral trade between Vietnam and Burma reached more than US$ 167 million, an increase of 9.8 percent over 2010.
