The two prime ministers passed through Phan Dinh Phung, Nguyen Tri Phuong, and Dien Bien Phu Streets before stopping at the headquarters of the Vietnamese Ministry of Foreign Affairs at 1 Ton That Dam Street.

The climate in Hanoi was cool with gentle wind when the two government leaders cycled under trees’ shadows.

The bicycles ridden by the two prime ministers feature the imagery of a lotus and tulips, which also form the logo to celebrate 50 years of Vietnam-The Netherlands' diplomatic ties.

Dutch PM Rutte is well known for his love of bicycles. He is often seen cycling from his home to governmental buildings in The Hague in the Netherlands.

Many Dutch people also choose to go to work by bicycle. The World Economic Forum estimated in 2018 that the Netherlands had 23 million bicycles while its population was only 17 million people.

The European country has favorable conditions for cycling, such as flat terrain, a short distance between venues, and over 35,000 kilometers of roads for bicycles.

Dutch PM Rutte and his entourage, including Dutch diplomatic officials and representatives of 23 hi-tech enterprises, arrived in Hanoi on Wednesday evening for a two-day visit to Vietnam at the invitation of Prime Minister Chinh.

The visit is expected to tighten the two countries’ relations while they are celebrating the 50th anniversary of their diplomatic ties this year.

This is the third time Rutte has arrived in Vietnam, proving his love of the Southeast Asian country and its people as well as his appreciation of the relations between the two nations.
