HA NOI (VNS) — Deputy Prime Minister Nguyen Xuan Phuc held a reception for a US business delegation led by US Ambassador to Singapore Kirk Wagar in Ha Noi yesterday.
Highlighting the robust growth of Viet Nam-US trade, the Deputy PM said the effective implementation of US-invested projects had contributed to Viet Nam's overall socio-economic development.
The US is currently the seventh biggest foreign investor in Viet Nam with 700 projects valued at approximately US$11 billion.
The future Trans-Pacific Partnership, to which both VIet Nam and the US are members, was expected to open up even greater trade opportunities between the two nations, Phuc said.
Thanking his host, Ambassador Wagar said that the purpose of his visit was to gain an insight into the Vietnamese market and promote the operation of US firms in Viet Nam. — VNS
