At his meeting with Mayor Phil Goff of Auckland City, he proposed the municipal authority to expand its cooperation with Vietnam, especially in economy and trade.

He also proposed strengthening ties in education, science and technology, manpower training, urban planning, infrastructure development, hi-tech agriculture and green energy.
