U.S. President Donald Trump starts two-day State visit to Viet Nam

The visit is made in the context that the Viet Nam-U.S. Comprehensive Partnership has been promoted, especially after the successful official visit of PM Nguyen Xuan Phuc to the U.S. in May, 2017.

The two sides have continued delegation exchanges at all levels and reached a number of agreements during the Vietnamese PM’s recent visit to the U.S. this year. 

This is the first visit of President Donald Trump to Viet Nam, which is held on the first year of his term of office, reflecting his respect to the relationship with Viet Nam and creating foundation for the two nations’ relations in the upcoming time. 

Viet Nam consistently attaches importance to the relationship with the U.S., willing to cooperate with President Trump’s authorities to uphold achievements and continue promoting the two sides’ Comprehensive Partnership based on respecting each side’ political institution, independence, territorial integrity and sovereignty. 

Viet Nam and the U.S. established diplomatic ties on July 12, 1995. 

Positive strides have been recorded in bilateral relations in all spheres since the countries established a comprehensive partnership in July 2013 on the basis of respecting each other’s territorial integrity, political regime and development path, for the sake of their own interests and for regional peace, stability and development cooperation.

Over the past years, the U.S. has become one of the leading trade partners of Viet Nam. Bilateral trade has continually grown by about 20% each year. Despite a trade deficit with Viet Nam, the U.S. has enjoyed a rapid export growth rate of 77% annually, four times higher than the growth of Viet Nam’s shipments to the US.

Total U.S. investment in Viet Nam has surpassed US$10 billion.
