At the meeting with Mongolian President Ukhnaagin Khurelsukh, the two leaders affirmed that they always attach great importance to the bilateral friendship, as well as the mutual support and assistance during the past struggles for national liberation and the current process of national construction.

President Phuc said he is willing to coordinate with President Khurelsukh and the two countries’ ministries and sectors to find appropriate measures to further develop bilateral cooperation in more fields. He proposed both sides work together to create favourable conditions for the export of each country's strong products so as to early achieve the goal of 100 million USD in two-way trade.

They agreed to continue maintaining and promoting the exchange of delegations at all levels and meetings through different forms, increasing the role of the intergovernmental committee, stepping up cooperation between the two countries’ ministries and sectors, flexibly deploying existing bilateral dialogue and cooperation mechanisms, and strengthening people-to-people exchanges, thus facilitating collaboration in all fields.

The two leaders agreed to find solutions to restore trade exchanges, which have been strongly affected by the COVID-19 pandemic, including the early signing of a free trade agreement between Vietnam and the European Free Trade Association (EFTA).

President Phuc thanked the Swiss Government for presenting Vietnam with medical equipment for pandemic prevention.

Appreciating Switzerland’s provision of ODA in human resource training, urban development, poverty alleviation, and rural development, he stated that Vietnam hopes to continue receiving the European country’s ODA through development projects for the next period.

He also showed his wishes to strengthen bilateral cooperation in the fields of science, technology and innovation.

At his meeting with Austrian President Alexander Van der Bellen, President Phuc invited the Austrian leader to visit Vietnam in 2022 when the two countries will celebrate the 50th founding anniversary of diplomatic ties.

 

The two leaders agreed that economic partnership has been the focus of bilateral cooperation in recent years. The two sides should soon organise the 10th meeting of the Vietnam-Austria Joint Committee, even in the online format, they said.

President Phuc pledged that Vietnam will create favourable conditions for Austrian firms to do long-term business in Vietnam.

He thanked the EU for its assistance to Vietnam in responding to COVID-19. Noting that the pandemic is developing complicatedly in the country, President Phuc said he hoped that the EU will continue to support Vietnam in accessing vaccine sources, treatment medicines and medical supplies.

The two leaders highly valued bilateral economic partnership, describing it as a bright sport in Vietnam-EU relations. They agreed to resume the exchange of delegations and high-level meetings soon, while optimising the efficiency of existing cooperation and dialogue mechanisms, and seeking measures to further promote bilateral relations.
