The group will meet with newly elected members of the National Assembly and government ministers as well as the local lawmakers in Da Nang and Ho Chi Minh City.

The British politicians will discuss Vietnam-UK bilateral relations with the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and the External Relations Committee of the National Assembly.

They will also attend a roundtable seminar on parliamentary oversight and meet the National Religion Commission and representatives of the Communist Party of Vietnam.

With an aim to strengthen trade and investment ties between the two countries, the British politicians will have meetings with the Ministry of Planning and Investment as well as business communities in Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City.

They expect to be briefed on the situation of the real estate and retail sectors in Vietnam.

The group will visit the Da Nang University, which will soon be upgraded into the UK-Vietnam International University.

"We look forward to strengthened links that enable us to work together to help Vietnam develop," said British Ambassador to Vietnam Antony Stokes.
