General To Lam, Minister of Public Security, made the statement at the online meeting with US-ASEAN Business Council (USABC) today [October 13].

According to Lam, the US is among Vietnam’s top trading partners and among the country’s largest export markets.

“Such achievements are thanks to the strategic vision of both Governments and the active participation of enterprises from the two countries, including business associations such as the USABC,” said Lam.

Addressing the current hardship that businesses are facing due to the Covid-19 pandemic, Lam said this is only temporary while expecting US enterprises to accompany their Vietnamese peers in the spirit of sharing benefits.

“Both US and Vietnamese enterprises should find the right direction to thrive in the new normalcy,” he added.

For his part, Former US Ambassador to Vietnam and USABC Vice President Michael Michalak highlighted significant progress in the US-Vietnam relations in the past years.

Michalak called for the Vietnamese Government in general, and the Ministry of Public Security in particular, to continue creating favorable conditions for US companies to do long-term business in Vietnam.

At the meeting, both sides have had frank discussions on issues of mutual interests, including the Cybersecurity Law, a Government decree on privacy data, or issues related to intellectual property rights protection.
