The two sides agreed that meetings between Vietnamese leaders and US President Donald Trump in late February in Hanoi contribute to promoting the bilateral partnership between the two countries, especially in investment and trade.

Freeman said that he is looking forwards to welcoming Party General Secretary and President Nguyen Phu Trong at the USCC in the future when the Vietnamese leader visits the US at the invitation of President Trump.

The American Chamber of Commerce in Vietnam (AmCham Vietnam) has coordinated closely with Vietnamese ministries, sectors and the Vietnam Chamber of Commerce and Industry to introduce the White Book on Vietnam-US trade partnership, and organise the US-Vietnam Business Summit in May this year, he said.

Freeman said that the USCC supports the US’s opening of its door for Vietnamese firms, as well as Vietnam’s similar act for US businesses.

Deputy PM Hue thanked the AmCham Vietnam for assisting the Vietnamese Government in assessing the attraction and the use of foreign investment in the country.

Noting that the Vietnam-US relationship is now developing very well, Hue suggested that the USCC and Vietnamese enterprises continue to work out initiatives to foster bilateral investment and trade ties, to be manifested in the White Book that will be introduced soon.

The Vietnamese Government pays great attention to proposals of US enterprises to promote trade and investment collaboration between the two business communities, he stated.
