Conditions are favourable for Vietnam and China to develop cross-border transport infrastructure to support bilateral trade and investment, Vietnamese Deputy Prime Minister Tran Hong Ha said on Tuesday.

Ha was speaking at a meeting in Hanoi with Wang Bin, General Manager of Power Construction Corporation of China (PowerChina).

Vietnam and China signed dozens of cooperation documents during a visit to Hanoi by Chinese President Xi Jinping in December, including on strengthening Vietnam-China railway cooperation and funding for cross-border railway development.

"Transport connection infrastructure will be a symbol of the cooperation between the two countries," Ha said at the meeting.

Vietnam also welcomes Chinese investment, including that of PowerChina, in renewable energy, he said.
