He also expected that Vietnam would continue receiving the RoK’s support as the country will assume the ASEAN Chairmanship in 2020.

Yoon, for his part, affirmed that the RoK values ties with Vietnam and ASEAN in general. He highlighted Vietnam’s importance in the implementation of the New Southern Policy of Korean President Moon Jae-in and in the development of relations between the RoK and ASEAN nations.

According to statistics, Vietnam leads Southeast Asia in two-way trade, investment and people-to-people exchange with the RoK.
