VN, Myanmar to enhance political-diplomatic ties

Việt Nam and Myanmar have agreed to further enhance political and diplomatic ties via increasing all-level visits and contacts through Party, government, State, National Assembly channels and people-to-people exchange. The agreement was reached during talks between President Trần Đại Quang and Myanmar President Htin Kyaw following the welcome ceremony in Hà Nội on October 26. The two Presidents also shared the view that the two countries should maintain existing bilateral cooperation mechanisms such as the Inter-Committee on Vietnam-Myanmar Bilateral Cooperation, the deputy ministerial-level political consultation, and the Inter-Committee on Trade, among others. They pledged to deepen mutually-beneficial trade and investment. Việt Nam is currently the 10th largest trade partner and investor in Myanmar. Both sides are actively working together on 12 priority fields of agriculture, industrial plants, fisheries, finance-banking, aviation, telecommunications, oil and gas, mining, electrical devices, automobile assembly, construction, and trade and investment.
