Viet Nam, Belarus wish to step up economic cooperation

(VGP - 04/04/2013) - Viet Nam and Belarus should speed up the implementation of economic cooperation programs for the 2013-2015 period and continue perfecting a legal foundation to further facilitate bilateral trade and investment, Prime Minister Nguyen Tan Dung has said while receiving Belarusian Economic Minister Nicolai Snopkov on April 4.

The Government chief proposed the two countries accelerate the implementation of the outcomes of the ninth session of the Viet Nam-Belarus inter-governmental Committee.

Both sides should enhance the implementation of their bilateral agreement on plant quarantine and the signing of an agreement on animal quarantine, paving the way for Viet Nam’s goods to penetrate the Belarus market as well as creating favorable conditions for enterprises of both sides to promote investment and trade.

He also called on Belarus to foster the free trade agreement (FTA) negotiations between Viet Nam and the Customs Union of Russia, Belarus and Kazakhstan.

Viet Nam wishes to and exerts efforts to work with Belarus to boost bilateral cooperation in a more effective, fruitful and deeper manner, bringing benefits to both sides, PM Dung emphasized.

For his part, the Belarusian economic minister expressed his impression of Viet Nam’s development, particularly in maintaining economic growth and eradicating poverty.

The guest affirmed that Belarus is willing to cooperate and share its experiences in industrial equipment, automobiles, bridges and roads, chemicals and petrochemistry with Viet Nam, while pushing up the FTA negotiations.

It was Nicolai Snopkov’s proposal that the two countries should promote the establishment of joint ventures in automobile-related manufacturing, telecommunications, milk production and farm produce processing. He expressed his hope that Viet Nam will create conditions for Belarus to strengthen trade and investment ties with other members of the Association of the Southeast Asian Nations.
