PM Chính described the fruitful Việt Nam - Philippines relations as an important foundation that creates motivation and confidence for enterprises from both countries to expand investment and business as well as promoting trade and investment cooperation. Appreciating the open policy and active support by Việt Nam, the Philippine President believed that Philippine businesses would continue to cooperate and expand investment in Việt Nam. He recommended they continue to develop traditional economic and trade cooperation fields, especially agriculture and other non-traditional fields such as mining, green technology investment, traffic and technology. Regarding Việt Nam’s concern over the Philippines’ trade defence measures and technical barriers, he said the two countries should build a good business environment and step up cooperation at governmental and business levels. Meanwhile, the Philippines hopes to collaborate with Việt Nam in electric automobile production, infrastructure development, telecommunications, energy, food, pharmaceuticals, agriculture and retail sales.
