Chinh told Trudeau that Vietnam has changed its strategy in dealing with Covid, switching to safe adaptation and effectively controlling the outbreak.

In mid-October Vietnam announced that it would accept Covid-19 vaccine passports from 72 countries and territories, and was discussing the issue with 80 others.

Referring to climate change efforts, the Vietnamese leader sought Canadian assistance for effecting institutional reform and with green technology and finance and human resources training for climate change response and innovation.

He hoped to see Canadian businesses increase their investment in Vietnam, especially in the green economy, digital economy and climate change response, he said.

The two sides also shared views on maintaining global peace and stability on the basis of international law, and safeguarding countries' legitimate and lawful interests for peace and common prosperity.

Trudeau stressed the importance of rule of law and promoting a rules-based world order.
