They shared the view that most of cooperation agreements have been carried out, helping fuel bilateral trade in 2018 by 25% year on year and turning Vietnam into the second biggest Asian trade partner of Cuba. Some investment projects of Vietnamese businesses in Cuba have been implemented actively. Additionally, connections in agriculture, health care, science-technique, culture-education, and information-communications have been improved.

During the meeting, officials agreed that for the time ahead, bilateral cooperation will focus on raising trade revenue, including boosting Cuba’s export to Vietnam, so as to achieve balanced trade while facilitating the implementation of Vietnamese firms’ investment projects in Cuba.

The countries will also effectively carry out the signed cooperation projects on agriculture and encourage the two business circles to partner in seed plant production and aquaculture. Collaboration in information-communications, health care, and other fields will also continue to be expanded.

Minister Ha said the co-chairpersons of the Intergovernmental Committee were unanimous in the need to further improve the committee’s operations in a practical and substantive manner. They also agreed on some new points in the cooperation agreements in various areas.

During their stay, the Cuban delegation met with Prime Minister Nguyen Xuan Phuc and had working sessions with key officials of the Vietnamese ministries of health, industry and trade, and planning and investment, and Quang Tri province, and executives of some businesses.

The minister affirmed the commitment to strongly and effectively realising the agreements reached at the 37th session so as to reinforce economic-trade links between the two nations.
