The PM made the trip to attend the 15th Annual Meeting of the New Champions of the World Economic Forum (WEF) in Dalian and pay a working visit to China from June 24-27.

Talking with the press, Son highlighted the trip’s significance in implementing Vietnam’s foreign policy as outlined at the 13th National Party Congress and Directive 25 on elevating multilateral diplomacy issued by the Party Central Committee’s Secretariat. It also served to realise the high-level common perceptions reached by Vietnamese and Chinese leaders in the spirit of comprehensive strategic cooperative partnership and building the Vietnam-China Community with a Shared Future that carries strategic significance.

He stressed that PM Chinh, as one of only two invited heads of state/government, played a key role at the WEF meeting. He and the Vietnamese delegation delivered impactful messages and joined discussions and meetings with various partners.

The PM’s keynote address resonated with an audience of 1,700 guests from 80 countries. He shared Vietnam’s inspiring story of Doi Moi (renewal), integration and development, solidifying Vietnam’s role and position on the international stage.

Advocating global cooperation to build trust, prioritise dialogue and adopt new approaches, he stressed the importance of promoting science and innovation to create new engines of growth, urging collaboration in policy frameworks, resource utilisation, and future workforce development.

Through open, sincere and insightful discussions with partners and businesses, the PM showcased Vietnam’s commitment to innovation and a pro-business environment. WEF Founder Klaus Schwab commended Vietnam’s dynamic economy which he said is a regional growth leader.

During talks and meetings with Chinese leaders, PM Chinh reiterated the importance of strengthening and developing friendly cooperation with China as an objective requirement, a strategic choice and a top priority in Vietnam’s foreign policy of independence, self-reliance, peace, cooperation and development, diversification and multilateralisation of external ties.

The host leaders reciprocated the sentiment, saying that they attach importance to relationship with Vietnam, considering it a priority in China’s overall neighbouring diplomacy policy.

Both sides agreed on directions and specific measures to intensify cooperation, while unceasingly working to solidify the strong social foundation for bilateral relations, upholding agreements and high-level shared perceptions, adhering to international law, and effectively and properly resolving disputes to prevent them from affecting the overall bilateral relations and contribute to global and regional peace and stability, concluded Foreign Minister Son./.
