Head of the Party Central Committee’s Economic Commission Nguyen Van Binh made the statement during a reception in Hanoi on February 25 for US Deputy Assistant Secretary of the Treasury for Asia Robert Kaproth.
Binh rejoiced over the substantial and effective development of Vietnam – US comprehensive partnership over the past years, especially in the context of the 25th anniversary of the normalized bilateral diplomatic ties this year.
Vietnam has directed competent agencies to regularly review the trade and investment ties with the US so as to swiftly clear obstacles and arising issues, including the trade deficit and market access towards creating more optimal conditions for US investors to do business in Vietnam.
The country is actively considering the possibility of accelerating cooperation projects with the US, including those in energy field, Binh told his guest.
The host also welcomed the US’s initiatives on regional cooperation in energy, science-technology, infrastructure, thereby attracting more US investment in Vietnam and facilitating Vietnam’s imports from the US.
Kaproth, in turn, showed his impression with Vietnam’s achievements in economic development over the past years and pledged his efforts to
continue working hand in hand with the Vietnamese Party and Government to propel Vietnam – US ties forward.
