PM Dung suggested that Viet Nam and Kyrgyzstan early sign economic agreements to create a legal foundation for speeding up their trade-investment relations while meeting with the Kyrgyz FM.  

Viet Nam and Kyrgyzstan should establish joint ventures in production to boost exports to the Customs Union of Belarus, Kazakhstan and Russia, said Mr. Dung.

The host leader also proposed that the two sides talk ways to spur education-training and cultural linkages.

For his part, Minister Abdyldaev Erlan Bekeshovich emphasized that Kyrgyzstan places importance on the relations with Viet Nam particularly in economics, trade, investment and culture.

Kyrgyzstan moving to join the Customs Union of Belarus, Kazakhstan and Russia will be an opportunity for the two sides to strengthen ties in economics, trade and investment.
