HÀ NỘI – Myanmar President Htin Kyaw and his wife will pay a State visit to Việt Nam from October 26-28 at the invitation of President Trần Đại Quang.

Friendship between Việt Nam and Myanmar has developed in recent years.

The two sides have defined 12 priority areas of co-operation, including agriculture, industrial crops, aquaculture, finance, aviation, telecommunications, oil and gas, mining, automobile assembling and manufacturing, construction, and investment-trade.

As of June 2016 Việt Nam was the 10th largest foreign investor in Myanmar with 11 projects.

Two-way trade hit US$299 million in the first seven months of this year, up 15.9 per cent year-on-year. The two countries hold annual trade fairs to bolster trade and investment ties.
