HÀ NỘI — The Vietnamese Government will create the best possible conditions for US enterprises, all in accordance with domestic and relevant international laws, Deputy Prime Minister Vương Đình Huệ announced yesterday.
He made the statement while hosting a reception for Michael Kelly, Chairman of the American Chamber of Commerce (AmCham), in Hà Nội.
Việt Nam believes that all obstacles will be removed to promote co-operation, investment and trade between the two nations, Huệ said.
He hopes AmCham, the US-ASEAN Business Council, and US firms will serve as a bridge, boosting diplomatic and economic relations as well as the development of Việt Nam and the US in the future.
The two countries have complementary economies, Huệ added, given that Việt Nam does not set the guidelines to enjoy trade surplus with the US but focuses on exporting products of its strengths while purchasing high-tech and environmentally friendly goods from the America to meet the demands of businesses and people from both countries.
Kelly, for his part, highly valued the development in the bilateral diplomatic and economic ties in the past, saying it has made significant contributions benefiting the two countries.
He said as Việt Nam is predicted to post the strongest economic growth in Asia, US firms will have more opportunities to collaborate with their Vietnamese partners.
Kelly also added that US firms are interested in co-operating with Vietnamese companies in the fields of healthcare, tax, digital economy, banking, defence-security and energy security, among others.
He confirmed that the AmCham will work closely with Vietnamese ministries, sectors, localities and enterprises to lever cooperation and investment between the two countries as well as seeking measures to address emerging problems in trade and investment. — VNS
