Asia Pacific Foundation hails growing Vietnam-Canada ties

VOV.VN - Asia Pacific Foundation of Canada, an independent and not-for-profit think-tank on Canada's relations with Asia, has given an analysis by Elizabeth McIninch on its webpage applauding Vietnam’s economic progress and its growing ties with Canada.

As the Chair of G7 this year, Canada has invited Vietnam to attend the G7 Summit due for later this week. The gesture helps uphold Vietnam’s higher position in the international arena and Canada’s respect to its relations with Vietnam on the occasion of their 45th anniversary diplomatic relations.

McIninch said Vietnam has been a center for the manufacturing of smart phones and technological devices of the world. The article noted a 20% increase on average in bilateral trade between Vietnam and Canada with US$6 billion generated last year.

Vietnamese students rank first among Southeast Asian peers in enrolments in Canadian universities with 14,000 students last year.

The article has a promising view about bilateral ties with more cooperation for mutual prosperity thanks to industrious people and close cooperation in trade, arts, science, and education.
