PM Phuc made the statement at the 21st ASEAN-China Summit held in Singapore on November 14, as part of the 33rd ASEAN Summit framework. The event also celebrated 15 years of strategic partnership between the two sides.

Highlighting the importance and huge benefits of the partnership for both parties involved and for peace, stability, and cooperation in the region, Phuc agreed that ASEAN and China should increase dialogue efforts and collaboration, as well as build mutual trust and uphold international law, contributing to the formation of codes of conduct for an open, transparent, and rule-based regional structure.

The Vietnamese Government leader said the East Sea issue remains complex, causing concern for all sides involved and possible negative impacts on regional stability.

He underscored that ASEAN and China should continue upholding the principles they had agreed upon, which involve boosting dialogues; building mutual trust; respecting international law, especially the 1982 United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea (UNCLOS), in the peaceful settlement of disputes; avoiding the militarisation or complication of the situation; developing an effective and substantive code of conduct (COC); and fully and seriously implementing the Declaration on the Conduct of Parties in the East Sea (DOC).

At the summit, ASEAN and Chinese leaders reiterated the importance of their partnership and acknowledged the strong growth of their ties based on mutual trust, understanding, and respect.

China has been ASEAN’s biggest trade partner and the bloc’s top foreign investor for years. Their dialogues at all levels have been held regularly, while bilateral cooperation has been deepened across politics-security, economy, socio-culture, and people-to-people exchange.

The leaders lauded positive outcomes achieved in the ASEAN-China Year of Innovation 2018 and agreed to work together for an effective ASEAN-China Media Exchange Year 2019. 

Chinese Premier Li Keqiang took note of ASEAN’s international role and position, highlighting that the positive results of cooperation between the bloc and China have laid solid grounds for the partnership’s expansion.

He affirmed that their principles have encouraged mutual respect for shared benefits and the boosting of win-win cooperation. 

Li said both sides should strive for stronger economy-trade-investment connection toward the goals of 1 trillion USD in bilateral trade and 150 billion USD in foreign direct investment in 2020. He urged the sides to focus on upgrading and effectively implementing the ASEAN-China free trade agreement and to support a multilateral trade system of openness, transparency, and rule of law.

China announced its plan to add an additional 10 million USD to the ASEAN-China cooperation fund and invite 1,000 ASEAN youths to visit China.

Li also stated that China will continue working with ASEAN in completing the COC within the next three years and in fully implementing the DOC, contributing to peace, stability, safe and free navigation and flyover, and free trade in the East Sea.

Potential for bilateral cooperation remains vastly untapped, the diplomat said, expressing his hope that the MoU will serve as a new driving force for bilateral trade-investment cooperation.

Under the document, VMBIZ and MVCC committed to supporting the health of the two business communities, trade promotion activities, and information sharing, and creating a platform for businesses to seize opportunities and enhance their connectivity.

MVCC President Howard Choo said Vietnam is one of the most dynamic economies in ASEAN and the country’s official ratification of the Comprehensive and Progressive Agreement for Trans-Pacific Partnership (CPTPP) would enable the two countries to make new strides in their economic-trade ties.

Dutch Consul-General in Ho Chi Minh City Carel Richter, for his part, affirmed that the special relations between his country and Vietnam were built up on the basis of their friendship.

Over the past years, the bonds between Vietnam’s southern hub and the Netherlands have been strengthened through cooperative activities in trade and investment, he said, describing HCM City as a favoured destination of Dutch firms to land investments.

Csaba Balogh spoke highly of the socio-economic development potential of the city which is the centre of the Mekong Delta region.

Regarding the agricultural field, the official suggested Can Tho consider importing several fish varieties with high productivity from Hungary.

The Hungarian side will work with the locality to provide assistance for farmers in foodstuff costs, pond dredging, aeration machines, and technical documents, he stated, adding that if the model proves successful, it can be expanded to the entire Mekong Delta region.

Hungary will encourage travel agencies and associations and local enterprises to intensify cooperation activities and support the city in tourism promotion, Balogh committed.

He also called on the municipal authorities to help promote Hungary’s tourist attractions such as Buda Castle, Lake Neusiedl and Heroes’ Square to locals.

In the healthcare aspect, Hungary is aiding the construction of the 500-bed Can Tho City Oncology Hospital with a total capital of over 1.7 trillion VND, or 70.5 million EUR.

According to him, the hospital focuses on not only treating, but also preventing cancer with cutting-edge equipment that serves the early detection of cancer.

As for the guest’s proposals, Thong affirmed Can Tho city and the Mekong Delta region always attach importance to consolidating and developing relations with Central and Eastern Europe nations, among which Hungary is a priority partner.

He expressed his hope that Can Tho and Hungary will step up their comprehensive partnership, and promote two-way trade, and asked Hungary to support its enterprises in visiting Can Tho to learn about the city’s investment environment, thus contributing to boosting bilateral ties.

Deputy PM requests suitable time for power price changes next year

Deputy Prime Minister Vuong Dinh Hue has asked that electricity prices, which affect many sectors, be adjusted at appropriate points of time next year so as to keep inflation in 2019 at under 4 percent.

He made the request while chairing a recent meeting on price management for the next year.

Deputy Minister of Industry and Trade Dang Hoang An said to realise the Government’s resolution, electricity prices haven’t been raised in 2018 to help control inflation as targeted by the National Assembly.

He affirmed that the power sector is still able to ensure electricity supply for 2019.

Although retail prices have been kept unchanged, input costs have been rising, and gas supply for power generation has hit its exploitation limit. Meanwhile, El Nino is forecast to hit Vietnam and cause drought next year, affecting the operation of hydropower plants.

All these factors have caused and will cause difficulties for the sector, An noted.

At the meeting, Deputy PM Hue asked the ministry to take into account next year’s inflation target of under 4 percent to propose power price changes at appropriate points of time to the Prime Minister.

According to the Ministry of Finance and the General Statistics Office, the consumer price index (CPI) in November is likely to stay flat or decline, helping keep this year’s CPI hike rate under 4 percent.

Hue ordered relevant ministries and sectors to not be complacent but keep a close watch on domestic and global prices through December to ensure the supply and demand balance and stable prices, especially in the Christmas and New Year holidays.

They also need to actively build price scenarios and adjust public services prices in line with the inflation target for next year.

Students, lecturers, scholars and researchers have expressed their admiration for Vietnam’s glorious history and development achievements during a scientific seminar recently held at the Autonomous University of Guerrero in the Mexican state of Guerrero. 

Speaking at the event, Rector of the Autonomous University of Guerrero Javier Saldaña Almazán spoke highly of Vietnam’s achievements during the reform process and expressed his wishes to promote bilateral educational ties with Vietnamese universities via scientific research, exchange of students and joint cultural activities. 

Vietnamese Ambassador to Mexico Nguyen Hoai Duong said over the past four decades since the end of the war, Vietnam has been on its way to becoming an industrialised and modernised country with improving position and role on the international arena and huge achievements in politics and socio-economy. 

Vietnam has formed diplomatic ties with 180 countries and trade ties with nearly 200 economies worldwide, he said. 

Duong said Vietnam has achieved an average annual growth rate of 6-7 percent in the past two decades, ranking 27th among the biggest exporters globally. Its products have been present in 180 markets worldwide, he said, adding that the country also signed 16 free trade agreements with important partners. 

According to the ambassador, thanks to its socio-political and macro-economic stability as well as a range of incentives, Vietnam has become a trustworthy destination for foreign investors. In the first ten months of this year, Vietnam lured nearly 28 billion USD in foreign direct investment. 

Since the establishment of diplomatic ties on May 19, 1975, Vietnam-Mexico relations have grown in all spheres such as politics, economy, trade, culture, education, healthcare and tourism. Mexico is now the third biggest trade partner of Vietnam in Latin America and vice versa, Vietnam is the eight largest market of Mexico in Asia. Two-way trade neared 5 billion USD last year and the figure amounted to 3 billion USD in the first eight months of 2018. 

Duong affirmed that once the Comprehensive and Progressive Agreement for Trans-Pacific Partnership (CPTPP) comes into force, economic, trade and investment ties between Vietnam and Mexico will further thrive. 

On the occasion, the Vietnamese Embassy in Mexico and the university launched a photo exhibition introducing images of Vietnam and its people to local residents. 

During his trip, the ambassador laid a wreath at a statute of President Ho Chi Minh City in the beach city of Acapulco.
