The two Vice Chairmen of ExxonMobil - Peter P. Clark and Raymond E. Jones - made the remarks at a reception hosted by State President Truong Tan Sang in Hanoi on May 22.
They described Vietnam as an increasingly attractive destination for investors, including ExxonMobil, and expected to receive additional Vietnamese support for their projects in the country.
The executives pledged to mobilise resources for effective implementation of cooperation programmes in 2014, laying firm foundations for future trade commitments between the two countries.
President Sang highly valued effective US business operations, helping fuel two-way trade turnover and assist Vietnam in Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) agreement negotiations.
He voiced strong support for US firms’ cooperation with Vietnamese partners in the oil and gas industry.
The State leader also appreciated ExxonMobil’s goodwill during its exploration and cooperation activities in Vietnam, and asked both sides to focus on successfully fulfilling trade commitments this year.
