Minh extended thanks for the Philippines’s effective support and collaboration with Vietnam – the current ASEAN Chair, especially in fostering cooperation in dealing with the pandemic.

He expressed his belief that the two countries and other ASEAN members will soon overcome challenges to stabilize socio-economic development and accelerate the process of the ASEAN Community building.

Both sides agreed to double efforts in further deepening the Vietnam-Philippines strategic partnership across fields, including health, trade, investment, and food security in the context of the current pandemic.
