Royal pair to visit Vietnam

Prince Willem-Alexander and princess Máxima will make an official visit to Vietnam next week. They will be in the country from Monday until Thursday, first in the capital Hanoi and then in Ho Chi Minh City (formerly Saigon).

It is hoped the visit will strengthen economic ties between the two countries, says the Telegraaf. The focus will be on water management, agriculture, transport and oil and gas.
Junior economic affairs minister Henk Bleker and junior infrastructure minister Joop Atsma will accompany the royal couple.
