PM: Vietnam, US should continue close multifaceted cooperation

In 2019, Vietnam and the US should continue close cooperation in the fields of economy, trade, security, defence and international issues in the lead up to the 25th anniversary of the normalization of bilateral ties, said Prime Minister Nguyen Xuan Phuc.

At a reception in Hanoi on December 26 for US Ambassador to Vietnam Daniel J. Kritenbrink, PM Phuc expressed his thanks to US President Donald Trump and the US Congress for providing funds for the accomplishment of a toxic detoxification project at Da Nang International Airport and the deployment of a similar project at Bien Hoa airport.

The PM spoke highly of the ambassador’s efforts in promoting the Vietnam-US comprehensive partnership in 2018, meeting practical benefits of their people and contributing to peace, cooperation and development in the region.

Having noted with pleasure the fruitful development of bilateral trade ties and the rapid growth of the US’s exports to Vietnam, PM Phuc thanked the US for creating favorable conditions for the Southeast Asian country to boost the export of several products such as tra fish, shrimps and fruits, to the US market.

The government leader also affirmed that Vietnam and the US have cooperated together well in regional and global issues of mutual concern.

For his part, Kritenbrink expressed his delight at the positive development of the bilateral relationship after PM Phuc’s visit to the US and US President Trump’s trip to Vietnam in 2017.

He thanked the government, ministries and sectors of Vietnam for their endeavors in beefing up the bilateral relations, including the settlement of matters related to automobiles, agricultural products, e-payment and the law on cybersecurity raised by US enterprises.

The ambassador affirmed that the US will continue assisting Vietnam in dealing with the war aftermath and hoped to step up cooperation with the nation in all spheres, including security and defence.

The US considers Vietnam a leading important partner in the region and wants to develop its relations with Vietnam as well as the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) for regional peace, cooperation and development, he stressed.
