Newly appointed Russian Ambassador to Vietnam Gennady Bezdetko noted Russia considers Vietnam a priority partner in its foreign policy in Asia-Pacific and is committed to bolstering the bilateral comprehensive strategic partnership.

According to Bezdetko, the two countries’ cooperation in trade, economy, and investment has been progressing since the signing of a free trade agreement between Vietnam and the Eurasian Economic Union (VN-EAEU FTA).

To further strengthen bilateral cooperation, Bezdetko suggested the two countries should continue focusing on trade, economic, and investment relations.

Tuan Anh welcomed the new Russian ambassador while expecting Russia to continue providing Covid-19 vaccines and transfer technology of vaccine production for Vietnam.

Tuan Anh said the Party and State attached significance to Vietnam-Australia strategic partnership while thanking Australia for this country's timely support for Vietnam in gaining access to Covid-19 vaccines.

The head of the Economic Commission expected the two countries to further cooperate in healthcare and support each other in multilateral forums in trade and investment, especially in the WTO and other regional FTAs.
