Both officials expressed their satisfaction over the fact that the buying-and-selling operations between both countries exceeded nine billion dollars in the first nine months of this year and considered it is possible to double that figure in a relatively short period of time.

Minh Chinh and Payne considered that objective is viable through the Vietnam-Australia Plan of Action for the 2020-2023 period and vowed that the two countries would soon become one of each other’s top 10 trading partners.

The Vietnamese prime minister asked Australia to facilitate the entry of Vietnamese agricultural and aquaculture products, keep the Official Development Assistance to that Asian nation and resume the scholarship program for young people from this country soon.

He also thanked the Australian government for the supply of medical equipment and 5.2 million doses of vaccines against the SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus, which causes Covid-19.

Payne said that Canberra considers Hanoi a priority partner and expressed the willingness to increase cooperation in infrastructure, agriculture, poverty reduction and response to climate change.

She also announced that Australia will donate another 2.6 million doses of Covid-19 vaccines to Vietnam.
