Vietnam Prime Minister Nguyen Tan Dung arrived in Haiti on Friday for an official visit to the Caribbean country.

The Vietnamese leader was received on Friday at the National Palace by Haiti President Michel Martelly, who expressed a desire to cooperate with Vietnam on issues like tourism, agriculture, energy and culture, according to a statement from Martelly’s office.

Dung’s visit included a stop to the Museum of the Haitian National Pantheon (MUPANAH) on Friday.

Dung announced plans to establish an embassy in Port-au-Prince, along with a new pledge of nearly 200,000 tons of rice for Haiti.

The Vietnamese PM also met with Haiti Prime Minister Laurent Lamothe, discussing areas like oil, trade and agriculture, among others.

Dung’s Haiti trip followed a high-level trip to Cuba earlier this week.
