During the visit, he met with Elke Kahr, leader of the Austrian Communist Party (KPO) in Styria that won a victory in local elections in Graz city on September 26. With this result, Kahr will become a new Mayor of Graz city later this year.

The two sides discussed cooperation between Viet Nam and Graz city over the past time and agreed to boost the bilateral collaboration in economy, industry, research - training, tourism - culture and experience sharing.

Kahr said she is willing to coordinate with the Vietnamese Embassy in Austria to organise activities in Graz on the occasion of the 50th anniversary of diplomatic ties between Viet Nam and Austria in 2022.

Kien made field trips to two local firms, Christof Industries and AVL, to explore the economic models of the Austrian state.

Christof Industries is specialised in mechanical and electrical assembly, I&C engineering, power plant engineering, mill installation and maintenance as well as the maintenance and repair of industrial machinery and plants.

Meanwhile, AVL is the world's largest independent company for the development, simulation and testing of powertrain systems.

Both enterprises expressed their hope for cooperation with Viet Nam.

At a seminar held by the Vietnamese Embassy in Austria, local businesses suggested that restrictions on movement, entry, exit and quarantine amid the COVID-19 pandemic should be removed or imposed in a flexible manner to create optimal conditions for Austrian firms to soon return to Viet Nam.
