He briefed the diplomats on Vietnam’s current situation, saying the COVID-19 outbreak is being brought under control and the government has adopted a strategy of safe and flexible adaptation to and effective control of COVID-19.
He requested that the Ambassadors work harder to lure back foreign tourists to Vietnam and make effective use of the European Union - Vietnam Free Trade Agreement (EVFTA) to facilitate Vietnamese goods’ penetration into Europe.
PM Chinh also asked the Ambassadors to work closely with relevant agencies of their host countries to garner support for the European Commission’s early removal of its ‘yellow card’ warning for Vietnamese seafood.
Besides the diplomatic mission, the Ambassadors should promote people’s diplomacy and pay more attention to Vietnamese overseas affairs, including citizen protection, said the PM.
PM Pham Minh Chinh is Paris for an official visit to France from November 3-5 at the invitation of his French counterpart Jean Castex.
