HÀ NỘI — Deputy Prime Minister Vương Đình Huệ had a working session in Hà Nội on Friday with Charles Freeman, Senior Vice President for Asia at the US Chamber of Commerce (USCC).

The two sides agreed that meetings between Vietnamese leaders and US President Donald Trump in late February in Hà Nội contributed to promoting the bilateral partnership between the two countries, especially in investment and trade.

Freeman said that he was looking forwards to welcoming Party General Secretary, President Nguyễn Phú Trọng at the USCC in the future when the Vietnamese leader visits the US at the invitation of President Trump.

The American Chamber of Commerce in Việt Nam (AmCham Vietnam) had co-ordinated closely with Vietnamese ministries, sectors and the Việt Nam Chamber of Commerce and Industry to introduce the White Book on Việt Nam-US trade partnership, and organise the US-Việt Nam Business Summit in May this year, he said.

Freeman said that the USCC supported the US opening its doors to Vietnamese firms, as well as Việt Nam’s similar act for US businesses.

Deputy PM Huệ thanked the AmCham Vietnam for assisting the Vietnamese Government in assessing the attraction and use of foreign investment in the country.

Noting that the Việt Nam-US relationship is now developing very well, Huệ suggested that the USCC and Vietnamese enterprises continue to work out initiatives to foster bilateral investment and trade ties, to be manifested in the White Book that will be introduced soon.

"The Vietnamese Government pays great attention to proposals of US enterprises to promote trade and investment collaboration between the two business communities," he stated. — VNS
