Australia places priority on economic ties with Vietnam

Australia’s Trade Minister Craig Emerson has named Vietnam among several Asian countries as his priority in fostering economic relations.

The Australian Broadcasting Corporation (ABC) on August 4 cited the minister as saying that he would be putting most of his efforts into developing relations with China, India, Indonesia, the Republic of Korea, Japan, Vietnam and Malaysia .

He says he wants to develop relations with a smaller number of countries, rather than spend most of his time in a plane flying around the world.

Emerson is leading a delegation of more than 80 Australian businesses on a tour of Chinese cities from August 4-9, aiming to explore new opportunities for Australian exports and investment in the country.
