Meeting with Chinese Ambassador to Vietnam Xiong Bo, PM Phuc highly appreciated the positive results of cooperation between Vietnam and China over the past time, saying Vietnam places great importance on developing the friendly neighbourliness and all-around cooperation with China.

He also asked the Chinese diplomat to make practical contributions to fostering the relationship between the two nations in the time to come. 

For his part, Xiong pledged his best efforts to further reinforce the China-Vietnam comprehensive strategic cooperative partnership for the benefits and development of each nation, thus contributing to peace, stability and prosperity in the region. 

Receiving Danish Ambassador to Vietnam Kim Højlund Christensen, the Vietnamese government leader suggested both nations should work hand in hand to realize agreements reached during his visit to the European country last October.

The current trade turnover of US$700 million between the two countries is still below their full potential, Phuc said, and called for joint efforts to further boost bilateral trade and investment ties. 

The cabinet leader proposed the ambassador organise more trips for Danish businesses to Vietnam so as to seek new cooperation opportunities and forms with host agencies, and asked Denmark to Vietnam’s prioritized projects in climate change response, environmental protection, education and health care. 

PM Phuc said with confidence that the ambassador, with his diplomatic experience, will make pragmatic contributions to bilateral relations in the time ahead.

Christensen, in turn, showed his elation at the fruitful relationship between Vietnam and Denmark and vowed to work hard to accelerate the implementation of agreements reached during the PM’s visit to Denmark in October this year. 

He also commended the Vietnamese Government’s efforts in improving the investment climate, adding that many Danish enterprises are keen to land investments in Vietnam.
