PM stresses importance of strengthened ties with US, Canada

September 06, 2023

The statement was made at the ASEAN-US Summit in Jakarta on Wednesday. The Vietnamese leader added that economic and trade cooperation should be the core, and science-technology and innovation the driving force behind the ASEAN-US comprehensive strategic partnership. The two sides will need to collaborate to promote harmonious and sustainable trade, stabilise the supply chains, minimise anti-dumping duties, subsidies and unnecessary measures for exports, which directly impact people’s employment and livelihoods. In 2022, the two-way trade turnover between ASEAN and Canada reached $23.1 billion, while the FDI from Canada into the region topped $3.63 billion. Believing that this is the right time to elevate the ASEAN-Canada partnership, PM Chính said that the focus should be put on trade, investment, market access and business connections.
