Ambassador reiterates Viet Nam's support for APEC's cooperation process
VGP - Vietnamese President Vo Van Thuong’s participation in the upcoming Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) Economic Leaders’ Week in the U.S. demonstrates Viet Nam’s support for multilateralism in general and the APEC process in particular, said Vietnamese Ambassador to the U.S. Nguyen Quoc Dung.
The Ambassador made the above statement during an interview with reporters on the threshold of President Vo Van Thuong's tour to the U.S. to attend the event.
Themed “Creating a Resilient and Sustainable Future for All”, the APEC Economic Leaders’ Week focuses discussions on connectivity, innovation, inclusiveness and issues of global concern, including sustainable supply chains, digital transformation, digital trade, energy transition, climate change fight, and green economy.
The third hosting of the APEC Economic Leaders' Week by the U.S. shows this country’s commitment to regional economic development as well as its sense of responsibility towards the global economy, Ambassador Dung said.
Viet Nam is ready to coordinate with other member economies to further accelerate APEC cooperation process in order to ensure sustainable economic development and generate new opportunities for the whole region, said the Ambassador.
Viet Nam's participation in this year’s APEC event in the U.S. also provides a chance for the country to step up bilateral relations with the U.S. after the two sides elevated their ties to a comprehensive strategic partnership level.
On this occasion, President Vo Van Thuong will take part in a range of other activities in San Francisco, including his meetings with the host officials, scholars, and businesses to discuss ways to realize the agreements reached when the new partnership was formed./.
