In terms of trade, President Quang said he hopes ministries, sectors and localities of China will soon finalise legal procedures to open the Chinese market for milk, dairy products, fruits, aquatic products and pork of Vietnam. He urged the Chinese side to continue facilitating trading between the two countries’ major businesses in coal and agricultural products. 

Regarding financial partnership, he called on China to provide Vietnam with more preferential loans and facilitate Vietnam’s access to concessional credit sources within the framework of ASEAN-China and Mekong-Lancang cooperation.

Premier Li reiterated that the Party, Government and people of China treasure the friendly neighbourliness and comprehensive cooperation with Vietnam. China believes that the two countries’ stable development brings opportunities for each other, he said. 

According to the premier, China pays attention to Vietnam’s concerns and has stepped up measures to increase the import of Vietnam’s agricultural products, improve trade balance, and create more favourable conditions for the provision of concessional credit packages. It has also actively worked in response to Vietnam’s request relating to the sustainable use of cross-border water resources, he said.
