President Tran Dai Quang’s official visit to Russia from June 28-July 1 is of significant importance as it is the first visit of the State President since he took office in 2016, the Russian diplomat said.

President Tran Dai Quang and the President of the Russian Federation Vladimir Putin had bilateral meetings in Lima (Peru) and in Beijing (China) last year, which have helped increase personal understanding between the two leaders.

Ambassador Vnukov said the two leaders share the same wish to reach concrete outcomes, thus contributing to the success of their meetings.

During President Tran Dai Quang’s visit, both sides will discuss opportunities to expand cooperation in energy, industry, transport, high-technology, agriculture processing, and especially military technical cooperation.

President is expected to meet with leaders of Russia’s major businesses operating in Vietnam, attend a business forum among other activities.

Ambassador Vnukov expressed his belief that leaders of the two countries will reach agreements to mark the 25th anniversary of the signing of a treaty on basic principle for bilateral friendship and cooperation in 2019.

Regarding the progress of the bilateral ties, the Ambassador highlighted that Vietnam is the first country to sign free trade agreement with the Eurasian Economic Union.

The free trade agreement, which took effect on October 5, 2016, has helped raise the two-way trade value to 1.1 billion USD, up 31% in the first four months this year. This is an encouraging signal for the two sides to achieve the target of 10 billion USD by 2020.
