Vietnamese Minister of Transport Nguyen Van The and head of the Federal Department of the Environment, Transport, Energy and Communications (DETEC) Doris Leuthard inked the agreement. 

Ms. Doris Leuthard supposed that the agreement not only creates favorable conditions to launch a direct air route but also enhances the development of tourism and trade between the two sides. 

Since November 2018, two direct air flights will be launched every week, facilitating more Swiss enterprises to travel to Viet Nam, she said.   

The two nations’ trade turnover reach around US$2 billion per year.
