Minister Dung said the freshly-concluded visit to Russia by General Secretary of the Communist Party of Viet Nam Central Committee Nguyen Phu Trong brought new opportunities for Viet Nam-Russia ties to reach a new high. During meetings as part of the Vietnamese Party leader’s visit, both sides vowed to create favourable conditions for their business communities to cooperate in energy, oil and gas, agriculture, urban transport infrastructure, information and telecommunications. 

Mr. Dung expressed his belief that on the back of Viet Nam – Russia comprehensive strategic partnership, Vietnamese firms will invest more in Russia in general and the Far East in particular, and bilateral trade will increase in the coming time.

The first forum, held in 2015, witnessed the signing of 80 deals worth more than US$20 billion.
